Biography

From Catford in South London, Rodney Cromwell is the solo electronic project of Adam Cresswell, founding member of John Peel indie-folktronica favs Saloon and one half of acclaimed electronic two-piece Arthur & Martha.

Rodney Cromwell's debut album 'Age of Anxiety’ combined danceable rhythms with melodic bass lines, the chimes of toy instruments, and the bleeps and whistles of retro synths. It explored themes such as paranoia, despair, love, loss and depression while retaining an upbeat pop sensibility.

The debut album was featured by among others NME, Electronic SoundHuffington Post, Louder Than War, BBC 6 Music and RNE3 in Spain for whom he recorded a live session. He was named 'Most Promising New Act' by The Electricity Club, featured in Electronic Sound's Albums of the Year and 'Barry was an arms dealer' featured in the 2015 Official Festive 50. He has supported the likes of Pram, Marsheaux, Death & Vanilla, Rowetta and Steve Davis and played Festivals including Threshold, Indietracks and Madrid Popfest. A follow-up EP 'Rodney's English Disco' was released in 2018 that took his analogue synth sound in an often bleaker new direction.
