Combining vintage analogue synths, an indiepop sensibility and acerbic wit, Rodney Cromwell evokes the synthpop sound of the past while still sounding forward-looking and fresh. From Catford, Rodney Cromwell is the project of Adam Cresswell, founding member of John Peel favourites SALOON & acclaimed electronic two-piece ARTHUR & MARTHA.
He has been featured by BBC6 Music, RNE3, Electronic Sound Mag, Huffington Post, Electricity Club & more.
“Rodney Cromwell’s music belongs to the future” – NME
Singer and lyricist Gene Serene emerged from Berlin’s hedonistic club scene. Synthesist and producer Lloyd Price is best known as a collaborator of SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK’s Martin Degville and a member of MASSIVE EGO.
Together as The Frixion their sound mines both classic synthpop and Weimar Cabaret to make a unique and engaging soundscape.
“Dark but accessible electronic pop” – The Electricity Club
Nature of Wires from Herefordshire formed in ’86 and until ’94 Andrew Stirling-Brown (vocals) & Gary Watts (synths) toured and released music with a melodic and muscular take on the synthpop sound.
A six month break lasted 20 years before their love for music was rekindled. Collaborating with Californian vocalist CountessM they produced their first LP for 23 years “Cyber Rendezvous”. In 2016 Tim Powell-Tuck joined the band on drums.
“Like a seething soundtrack for the mind” – Louder Than War
Conceived in 2009 in a box room in Coventry, Vieon is the brainchild of synth wizard Matt Wild. Influenced by pioneers such as Jean-Michel Jarre & filtered through the soundscapes of 80s electronic film scores, Vieon blend the sounds of the analogue past and dystopian future with synth hooks and epic solos to create evolving, emotive, spacey electronic music. Live Vieon create a distinctive, immersive and engaging audio-visual experience that’s not to be missed.
