Soft Power is a Melbourne based post-rock jazz band by guitarist Matthew Roche.
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 and meditative improvisations. With album launches in Melbourne, Sydney and a performance at MONA under their belt, Soft Power are ready to stride into 2019 with their own quiet revolution.
Featuring Matthew Roche (guitar), Oscar Neyland (double bass) and Chris Cameron (drums), the internal becomes an accessible place in the hands of Soft Power, their slow burning harmonic landscapes and jazzy vibes play out in a captivating listening environment that hypnotizes rather than startles - demonstrating a maturity beyond their collective years.
“Easy Listening, the sprawling new album from Melbourne three-piece Soft Power, melds jazz, prog-rock, and psych to deliver something truly mesmerizing”. – HAPPY MAG 2018
