Oh Mercy: Cafe Oblivion

Words by Bianca O’Neill

A fast track to success.

It’s hard to fathom that at the tender age of 29, Alexander Gow has delivered his fifth album under the Oh Mercy moniker.

His creative exploration through the broad spectrum of mostly ’80s influences continues on this, his most personal release.

Still sitting firmly in Oh Mercy territory, Cafe Oblivion feels like an Australian classic already.

‘Hot Topic’ is one of those tracks you’ll come back to again and again, while ‘Get On’ is like a sexy, oozing Oasis tune. If that song doesn’t do something to your insides, you should probably check your pulse.

If this output continues, Gow is well on his way to music legend territory.
