A returning BBC Introducing headliner
Indiana is another act making a return to the BBC Introducing Stage in 2014, following on from the enormous success she has had since playing at Glastonbury in 2013. With an even bigger year ahead already underway, it seemed fitting to invite Indiana back to headline the Sunday night in Glasgow and close the Introducing Stage at Big Weekend.
Not many artists can say that within a year of playing their first ever gig, they had also played for perhaps the most important woman in the country. Yes, the Queen. Indiana’s rise to musical success reached an incredible height when she accompanied The Script to perform to the Queen as she visited Radio 1 during her official opening of the BBC’s New Broadcasting House. This was certainly a far cry from the year previous, when she was playing her first gig to a crowd of a few hundred in her hometown Nottingham.
We're sure The Queen would have been particularly impressed by Indiana’s unique synth-pop style, which has an '80s feel with plenty of modern touches. Overlay this with Indiana’s haunting vocals and you have a mesmerising hit, just like her latest track Solo Dancing, which gave her her first top 40 UK hit, when it charted at No. 14 at the end of April.
