The latest teens to burst out of Yorkshire, ONO don't plough the same irony-fuelled furrow as Arctic Monkeys; rather they till a softer, bouncy-indie aural terrain.

Recent single Just For Tonight bursts with the cheerful, soaring pop bluster that's sprinkled liberally throughout the record - like Keane at their most effusive - replete with foot-tapping melody and feel-good lyrics.

Jaunty piano and organ blast through the genuinely enjoyable, if derivative, debut single You And Me, but such vim wears thin even before the record's halfway point.

The bulk of Started A Fire is uninspiring indie-lite-by-numbers; great for those looking for pleasant dinner party music that won't offend, or excite, anyone. 2/5
