Id not heard of Indiana before, but through Amazon recommendations, and the 30 second snippets - I thought Id give her a go

Its a funny one really; The general air of the album is Sultry Pop (think a slightly more optimistic and friendly but just as pouty Lana Del Ray, or a grown-up and infinitely sexier Ellie Goulding), but the variety in the theme is huge. But Ive read that this is an amalgamation of songs written over a period of several years, so with that context it makes a lot of sense that theres no singular sound.
Whatever the case though, you cant really pick a track that epitomizes the feel of the album, which is another way of saying Indiana has a great versatility of skill and influences (and hopefully influence on future artists!)

Solo Dancing is by far my favourite, and is a sort of dirty electronic number; whereas Heart On Fire (another favourite) borders on campy 90s dance pop - Only The Lonely is one of the prettiest songs Ive heard in a long while, but couldnt be further in style from the independence-affirmative title track No Romeo.

Its a great mix, and in general the songs become more and more appealing the more times you hear them - rather than becoming bored with them - but you may find yourself like me, skipping big chunks depending on what mood youre in.

All in all, a great compilation of tracks to strip down and fill out numerous playlists, but maybe not something I would listen to all the way through on its own; and made imperfect by one or two tracks that are pretty much padding. I will however be looking out for more of her work, and sincerely hope this isnt her first and last album!

Despite releasing her first single nearly 3 years ago (Blind As I Am), and releasing a further 4 since then, the album No Romeo is the Nottingham born singer’s first physical release.
Showing influences from 80s ambient, and 90s Café del Mar Trip-Hop the album shows off Indiana’s great vocal range. Comparisons could be drawn with early Dido, but personally I find the style more reminiscent of Lana Del Ray, which is no bad thing really.
Favourite tracks so far are probably “Ink” for its laid back style, and the breakthrough song "Solo Dancing” which has been on rotation on my stereo for many months. "Smoking Gun" is another cracker of a tune, and sounds as if it could have come from the soundtrack of Hannah or Sucker Punch.
One final thought though is that the album is very much in the laid back style, belying some of the cracking remixes of tracks which have appeared the single releases, but think Tori Amos with Professional Widow, and the people who bought Boys for Pele just for that track, and were rather confused when they got it home.

Phenomenal debut album from the Nottingham lass. Ready low key electronic songs music that defy most genres... Sometimes dancey, sometime dark, very occasionally poppy... With a voice and style that evokes female vocalists as talented and diverse as those from the xx, Portishead, Kate Bush, but with lyrics that are modern, brooding and... Sexy... It's a class album that you should give the time of day.

A true hidden gem, worth having especially if you have prime, I mean, why not? I'm sure this album will endure, simply because it has all the right things in its equation, but the minimal sound will always draw smaller crowds. When you look at the lyrics you will notice something astounding, there is only one single reference to popular culture with Kano and Jade in "Shadow Flash" and the only reference to technology is a 'flat line' in "Play dead". I don't need to go any further I feel, you've heard her voice otherwise you wouldn't be here, get it, get it now.

Really superb collection of tracks - amazing variety of styles but all very original and distinct. My personal favourites being Play Dead (moody, dark), Only the Lonely (upbeat, lively) Calibrated Love and Go Fast (Kraftwerky, vocodery). Though my number one track is Heart on Fire which made me buy the album and which I could listen to all day long! I also love the fact that she's not afraid to let the songs go on a bit and develop - just a fantastic debut!

An outstanding debut album from a very talented young musician. No Romeo is a mix of soulful singing, rich production values and dark, edgy pop. Featuring superb singles in "Jack" and "Solo Dancing" and my favorite song of the year so far, "Shadow Flash" this is a great album which I'd strongly recommend

I dont normally do reviews but I bought this album a little on spec after hearing the snippets of all the tracks. To be honest I am overwhelmed how good it is. I am not going to try and categorise it or say what Indiana sounds like because I am too old and I don't know the various terms except it is an excellent album and she deserves all the success she can get. Normally on any first album if they have not had eg Simon Cowells funding behind them, you can tell they have a good voice but the tracks just start to sound the same and become a little boring. This one however, has a wide variety of different pace and style, showing off her prowess as a singer and whoever produced the album brought out her real talent. Well done that girl!
