Oh Mercy hit the road throughout April to celebrate the release of their highly anticipated 5th studio album ‘Café Oblivion’, released through EMI on March 9.

Alex Gow, the Melbournian man behind the ARIA Award winning Oh Mercy has established the name as an iconic Australian act. ‘Café Oblivion’ affirms the whispers, Gow is certainly one of the country’s most accomplished, interesting and interested songwriters. A student of The Triffids, Paul Kelly and The Go-Betweens, album by album, Gow has managed to forge his own musical legacy. 

Whereas 2015’s ARIA Award-winning ‘When We Talk About Love’ spoke of love, loss and longing, ‘Café Oblivion’ revels in the psychedelic imagery or lovers, villains, Gods, Australian sporting personalities and marsupials alike. It features songs set in Everest, in Sri Lanka, Abbotsford cafes, Nashville bars, post-apocalyptic landscapes and a 1980s Italian TV set. It is above all things playful.

Café Oblivion unfurls to reveal a wondrous and charming landscape. One unlike Oh Mercy has produced before. So, grab a table by the window where pathos and ecstasy share a schooner under the 67th of 350 signed prints of Steve Smith. As the world gets crazier, Gow just keeps getting better. 

This is an 18+ event.
