Rodney Cromwell Short Info

Made almost entirely on analogue gear, RODNEY CROMWELL's debut album 'Age of Anxiety’ evokes the synthpop sound of the 70’s and 80’s while still sounding forward-looking and fresh. Danceable rhythms combine with uplifting bass lines, the chimes of toy instruments and the bleeps of retro synths while maintaining a classic pop aesthetic. The LP explores subjects such as paranoia, despair, love, loss, obsession, panic and anxiety, yet it retains an upbeat pop sensibility. Sitting squarely between indie and electronica, his sound has been compared to Kraftwerk, Section 25, New Order, John Grant and the retro futurism of Ghostbox Records.

Rodney Cromwell’s debut album ‘Age of Anxiety’ was a surprising left-field critical hit, featuring in over 30 ‘Best of 2015’ charts including those of Electronic Sound Magazine and The Electricity Club who also named him ‘Most Promising New Act’. The track ‘Barry Was An Arms Dealer’ featured in the fan voted 2015 Official Festive 50.

Rodney Cromwell is the nom-de-plume of Adam Cresswell from Catford in London. He was founding member of indie-folktronica band SALOON (who had four entries in John Peel’s Festive 50 & recorded three Peel Sessions) and one half of acclaimed electronic two piece ARTHUR & MARTHA.

Coverage includes acclaim in the likes of NME and Record Collector and airplay includes multiple spins from Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe on BBC6 Music plus extensive play on RNE 3 in Spain on the Hoy Empieza Todo con Marta Echeverría and Julio Ruiz, Disco Grande shows. He has made fans of Mal Holmes (OMD), Rusty Egan (VISAGE) and many more. For coverage details: http://www.happyrobots.co.uk/#!rodney-cromwell-impact/c6ha

The live set incorporates analogue synths, tailor-made video visuals and plenty of live- instrumentation, backing-up Rodney’s blissful tunes and, what the NME calls, his ‘offbeat wit’.
