Rodney Cromwell ‘Age Of Anxiety’

rodney cromwell1

Rodney Cromwell is set to release his debut album ‘Age Of Anxiety’ a sumptuous feast of the very best best kind of Synth Pop.

Strongly influenced by artists such as OMD, New Order and Kraftwerk, ‘Age Of Anxiety’ has been described by Malcolm Holmes (OMD) as “liquid gold”, and I can only concur.

Several tracks have already premiered on BBC6 Music, whist the lead single from the album ‘Barry Was An Arms Dealer’ is premiering in The Record Stache.

Made almost entirely on vintage gear, ‘Age of Anxiety’ brings to mind the synthpop sound of the 70’s and 80’s whilst remaining fresh and exciting.

Krautrock rhythms combine with melodic bass lines, the chimes of toy instruments, the bleeps of antique moogs, ARPs and vintage synths, while the songs still maintain a classic pop format.

Whilst ‘Age Of Anxiety’ may cover themes of juvenescent paranoia, romantic despair, love and loss, panic attacks, and depression, it somehow manages to remain both upbeat and innocent, for an altogether very pleasing Audio experience.

‘Age of Anxiety’ by Rodney Cromwell is available for pre-order on Bandcamp and CDs are available through Cargo Records and Darla Records.
