Soft Power is a Melbourne trio led by guitarist/composer Matthew Roche that is a soundtrack to a not-so-distant Utopian world.
An all-instrumental outfit of improvised guitar, bass and drums – they collectively challenge expectations associated with pop music and the spoken word. Immersive and inclusive, they beat to the rhythm of their own movement they call ‘post-rock jazz’.
“Easy Listening, the sprawling new album from Melbourne 3-piece Soft Power, melds jazz, prog-rock, and psych to deliver something truly mesmerizing.” – HAPPY MAG
Since the release of “Easy Listening” (Newmarket Music 2018) and “A Breath Is Like a Swinging Door” (Independent 2017), Soft Power have transfixed audiences nationally with their down tempo jazz grooves, art rock vibes and meditative improvisations. Now with album launch tours in Melbourne, Sydney, Hobart and a performance at MONA already under their belt, Soft Power are ready to stride into 2019 with their own quiet revolution.
