No not the state. It is no secret that I grew up in Indiana, and I have a strong love for that state and the Midwest in general. However, this post isn’t about the state.

Anyway, this electropop group sounds like a cross between “Halycon” era Ellie Goulding, Florence+The Machine if Florence had less vocal range and power, and London Grammar. Below is a sampling of original tracks and really good remixes.

I clicked on the Indiana hashtag on Soundcloud to see what else is named after my home state. I discovered an electropop gem. This light and playful track is borderline whimsical. I absolutely love it.
A lot of good music here, but one question remains. Why would you name a song or group “Indiana”?
