Initially serving as a means of escapism, Soft Powder is the solo project of Andy Szetho. Conceived within the confines of his Melbourne bedroom, Soft Powder’s blend of 80s inspired dream pop finds refuge in a place of melancholy and wonder, whilst centering around themes of identity and belonging, and the influence that growing up Asian in Australia has had on him.
After the release of his debut EP ‘Shangri-La’ late in 2018, Soft Powder has spent the year honing in on his craft as a producer and songwriter, as well as playing a string of live shows at iconic Melbourne venues such as the Northcote Social Club, The Gasometer Hotel, The Grace Darling, and The Workers Club. Having also undertaken a residency at The Retreat Hotel, and supporting Sydney band PLANET earlier in the year, Soft Powder is ready to expand his live show and to explore new territory beyond Melbourne’s thriving music scene.
