Rodney Cromwell Short Info

Rodney Cromwell's sound has been compared to the analogue electronica of Kraftwerk,
Section 25 and the 'retro futurists' of Ghostbox Records. His miserablism and dark humour
has been compared to that of The Cure and John Gran

Hailing from Catford, Rodney Cromwell is the project of Adam Cresswell, founding member of John Peel endorsed indie-folktronica band SALOON (Darla Records / Track & Field) and one half of acclaimed electronic two-piece ARTHUR & MARTHA (Happy Robots).

Rodney Cromwell evokes a classic synthpop sound while still looking to the future. Motorik rhythms combine with melodic bass lines, the chimes of toy instruments, and the bleeps of retro synths within a lo-fi pop aesthetic. His songs explore themes including romantic despair, love loss and post-millennial tribulation but still remain positive and uplifting.

The debut album found crossover appeal gaining Cromwell support from Malcolm Holmes (OMD) and Rusty Egan (Visage) as well as media coverage from NME, Electronic Sound, Huffington Post and Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music and on RNE3 in Spain. At the end of 2015 Rodney Cromwell featured in 25 'Best of' lists and was named 'Most Promising New Act' by The Electricity Club. 'Barry was an arms dealer' featured in the 2015 Official Festive 50 on Dandelion Radio.

​The live set incorporates analogue synths, video visuals and live instrumentation along with Rodney’s ‘offbeat wit’. In 2015 Rodney Cromwell made an incredibly well-received festival debut at Indietracks. He has since made festival appearances in the UK and in Spain at Madrid Popfest and has supported the likes of Marsheaux, Death and Vanilla and 'snookerstar DJ' Steve Davis as well as selling-out his last London headline date at the end of 2016.

An EP of all new material 'Rodney's English Disco' is scheduled for release in 25 May 2018 to coincide with a UK Tour.
