Title: Our Temperance Movement
Label: How Does It Feel

2009 album from the Finnish Indie Pop band. Imagine growing up in Finland anything other than a hard rock fan. It's safe to say that Cats on Fire singer Mattias Bjorkas isn't a Heavy Metal fan. Just look at him: With cheekbones you could hang a Rembrandt on and a perfect, almost arrogantly-styled quiff, this cravat-wearing hybrid of the young David Bowie and James Dean seems a world apart from scuffed denim and greasy hair. And his band's music inhabits a different universe as well - jangling indie pop tussling with rip-roaring Rock 'N' Roll, ornate REM-esque melodies squaring up to exuberant indie dancefloor smashes. Kicking off with the infectious, hand-clapping, energy rush of the single 'Tears in Your Cup', the album showcases Mattias' singular style and worldview - he's sardonic, poetic, funny, political, eccentric, and a true star in the old-fashioned sense, a flamboyant misfit to rank alongside Edwyn Collins and John Lydon.
