 Coinciding with the album release, Indiana returns to her breakout single ‘Solo Dancing’. Back on the BBC Radio 1 playlist, ‘Solo Dancing’ is hedonistically addictive dancefloor pop, a hypnotic narrative of self-empowerment set to decadent afterhours disco, slinky Italo synths and an earworm vocal hook.

 The thirteen tracks that make up No Romeo explore a captivating spectrum of styles and moods, remaining individualistic and true to Indiana’s unique vision throughout. They assert her as a gifted storyteller, with songs of vivid narrative brought to life by the powerful emotional palette of her voice.

With each song I immersed myself in to a role and pushed the boundaries I dared not to in real life,” says Indiana. “The more I wrote, the more I discovered about myself. What started out as an emotional outlet had turned into my life and with each day I was growing as an artist. The title is a pseudonym I have given to myself. These may appear to be love songs but look closer, chip away their exterior beauty and reveal an inner darkness. I am No Romeo.”

 Sparkling Scandinavian dance pop (‘Heart On Fire’, ‘Solo Dancing’) spellbinding future-addled lullabies (‘Shadow Flash’, ‘New Heart’), visceral, crashing crescendos (‘Never Born’, ‘Mess Around’), slinky future r&b (‘Bound’, ‘Jack’) and majestically arching ballads (‘Blind As I Am’, ‘Only The Lonely’) coalesce seamlessly on No Romeo to form one of this years most compelling and addictive alternative pop propositions.
