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 Sound Magazine, Huffington Post, BBC 6 Music and RNE3 in Spain. At the end of 2015 he was named 'Most Promising New Act' by The Electricity Club and 'Barry was an arms dealer' featured in the 2015 Official Festive 50. He has supported the likes of Pram, Marsheaux, Death & Vanilla and Steve Davis and played Festivals including Threshold, Indietracks and Madrid Popfest. The new EP 'Rodney's English Disco' was released in 2018 and he is touring in support of its release.
