Oh Mercy are proud to announce their When We Talk About Love album tour.
Written across three American cities and then home, Alex has described the album as his most personal to date, “Its genetics are the sum of my musical loves. Bacharach, Cohen, The Triffids. Grand, proud and not self-conscious. I accessed all that I’ve learnt, all that I know, or think I know, and importantly, all that I love, to create this record.”
Having recently sold out their Sydney and Melbourne Sandy 7” shows, this will be the first national tour for Oh Mercy since Alex returned home to Australia to record the album. The When We Talk About Love tour returns to Melbourne and Sydney plus visits Brisbane, Newcastle, Darwin, Perth & Fremantle for the first time since 2012. This will also be the first tour for the new band mates, Oh Mercy now featuring keys, viola, drums, bass and occasional second guitarist.
“Gow and his four-piece band produce a classic pop sound with timeless songs about love and desire that showcase Gow’s obvious strength as a songwriter. New tunes Let Me Be Him, I Don’tReally Want To Know, Without You and All Roads Lead To You have the crowd listening in rapt contemplation as Oh Mercy deal a proper teaser of When We Talk About Love, which clearly comes with the promise of being one of their very best.” the music
“Steady rock in the likes of Petty, Bruce and War on Drugs” RunTheMill
