Oh Mercy have been wooing Australian audiences in 2011 with an album full of effortless pop tunes, Great Barrier Grief featuring the singles Keith St, Stay, Please Stay, Let Me Go, Confessions and now Blue Lagoon.
The strength of Oh Mercy's pop sensibility is evident in their appeal to a wide audience of music lovers. In July, Alexander toured nationally along side Dan Sultan, before Oh Mercy hit the stage at Splendour In The Grass festival & shows with UK buzz band The Vaccines. A quick trip back to America will be followed by A Day On The Green shows & then as special guests of The Triffids.
Alexander Gow is fast becoming recognised as one of Australia's leading young songwriters, with a serious nod in his direction from Paul Kelly, inviting Alexander to perform alongside him on One More Tune at the 2011 APRA Awards & most recently Oh Mercy have been nominated in the 2011 ARIA Awards for Breakthrough Artist - Album.
