Rodney Cromwell Shares New Single/Video "Exercise Class"

British indietronica/synthpop/robotpop artist Rodney Cromwell (aka Adam Cresswell) has shared his new single “Exercise Class“, alongside a video.

The song serves as the title track of his new EP ‘Exercise Class‘, due out tomorrow, June 14 via Happy Robots Records. Get it here.

As with all output from this retro-futuristic songsmith, Cromwell’s new output is just as fitting for the indie-disco dancefloor as a sweaty exercise studio.

The title track fuses dead-pan spoken-word lyrics, with a melodic chorus and Cromwell’s signature classic synth sound. The song draws influences from LCD Soundsystem, Metronomy and ‘Blue Monday’ as well as to the iconic soundtracks of Jane Fonda workouts videos. It’s a song that belongs as much on the indie-disco dancefloor as a sweaty exercise studio.

On the inspiration behind the track Cromwell says: “I hate exercising, and I wanted to write something that celebrates that fact. Despite appearances, I’ve spent a lot of time over the last 20 years pounding the streets of South London as well as hanging around in cut-price gyms. So, I found myself writing a song that observes the less glamorous, sometimes creepy side, of workout culture.”
