Soft Power

Post-rock jazz from the depths of Melboune’s leafy suburbia, Soft Power was formed by guitarist Matthew Roche in 2016 who began writing songs to pay homage to the jazz traditions of yesteryear whilst exploring themes of personal vulnerability and self-growth inspired by a Zen style silent meditation retreat in the Victorian hinterlands. Undoubtedly jazz tinged, but also (more importantly) – vulnerable, genderless, dorky & kitsch, unshowy & meditative –Soft Power’s new record ‘Easy Listening’ (released April 19th Newmarket Music) traverses a broad path through slow moving harmonic landscapes that at times verge on post-rock, 60’s surf guitar, pop and cinematic ambient music.
