If you’re fortunate enough to know Ro James' underrated series of EPs, Coke (2013), Jack (2013), and Cadillacs (2013), then you're familiar with his mesmerizing track, "Indiana Jones." It's his deeply-personal tale of losing love, moving on, and handling the return of a bygone lover. 

BKLYN1834 filmed Ro along abandoned railroad tracks in the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, as part of our BKLYN AIR series. Ro performs his track in a single take, captured by director, aaronisnotcool. The episode opens with Ro discussing his experience of falling in love at a young age, and how that has inspired his music. The Brooklyn-based producer, ATR77, provides the buoyant keys beneath James‘ rich vocals. James' honest approach to R&B is on full display, as he achieves a level of vulnerability rarely seen in today's pop landscape.

After the video, you can stream the studio version of “Indiana Jones” via SoundCloud, while you browse our behind-the-scenes photos from Ro's show at the Highline Ballroom in Manhattan. Ro James’ EPs, CokeJackand Cadillacs can all be purchased on iTunes.
