Soft Power

Soft Power

Front Bar // Free

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.

WINTER POP UP TOUR, FEAT. GEORGIA FIELDS (MEL), PHENO (CAN), MATILDA ABRAHAM (SYD), MERPIRE (MELB)

Band Room // $16+BF or $20 door

Four dynamic indie-pop music-makers from across the country are joining forces on a collaborative East Coast tour this June. Georgia Fields, Pheno, Matilda Abraham and Merpire present a delectable evening of alt-pop passion and creative camaraderie as they perform a mix of solo originals, rearranged covers and cute collabs! Conceived out of a desire to build community across state lines with likeminded, independent artists, this DIY mini-festival celebrates the unveiling of new music from the singer-songwriters – each a distinct voice in melodic, story-driven pop.

Matilda Abraham’s latest EP ‘Away’ (out now) features lush, heavily layered vocal arrangements, warm synths, and low-fi drum machines. Pheno’s recently released EP ‘Dragon Year’ (out now) is a collection of songs composed while pregnant with her first child. With themes that divulge the joy, darkness and downright weirdness of becoming a parent, this is real-life storytelling in a vibrant, art-rock setting. Merpire will give audiences a taste of her forthcoming EP ‘Endless Chatter’ (out 23 June), and Georgia Fields will share new, yet-to-be-recorded, brand new songs composed during her recent residency at Jackie Winter Gardens.

Come swoon, sway and get your fix of endearing indie-pop in a rosy and low-lit setting.
