Blur Drummer Dave Rowntree Shares Debut Solo Single London Bridge

Wednesday, 06 July 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

Blur drummer Dave Rowntree has released his debut solo single.

Out now via Cooking Vinyl, London Bridge boasts production by Leo Abrahams, who also contributed to guitar, piano, synth and programming, with Rowntree taking care of vocals and synth. The genre-blurring song brings together elements of synth-pop and indie, and offers an earworm chorus. Rowntree said:

“When i lived in London things just started happening when I was near London Bridge, going over London Bridge on the bus, or on the tube going underneath London Bridge. I would just notice events occurring, or have life changing thoughts, make decisions and it was slightly unsettling. I had to confront my London Bridge demons.”

The track, which is accompanied by a video created with French design trio Cauboyz, is part of a larger body of work, though further details are scarce. Rowntree explained:

“I’m really excited to release my first single as a solo artist. It’s from a body of work that I’ve been putting together over the last couple of years, and I’m humbled to be releasing it on the legendary Cooking Vinyl label."
