Alexander Gow, the man behind Oh Mercy, is five albums deep and showing no signs of slowing down. His most recent, the heady & melodic, Café Oblivion finds Gow at his playful best. Café Oblivion combines the rich palette of the Aria award winning When We Talk About Love, with the bombastic, Aria & Triple J album of the year nominated, Deep Heat.
From Oh Mercy’s debut in 2009, Gow has pivoted musically from album to album, keeping critics and fans alike on their sonic toes. His refusal to be pinned down and his dogged desire to develop his art has rightfully earned him his place as on of Australia’s most admired and applauded songwriters.
