Oh Mercy has invited Brisbane’s 4 piece Millions to be their main support on the ‘Deep Heat’ national tour throughout September and October.
Great Barrier Grief, the sophomore release from Melbourne-based Oh Mercy, is pleasant, breezy, and polished. The record opens with a nice steady foot-tapping drums-and-marimba beat, and a nice warm jangly guitar sound, both of which are, well…pleasant, breezy and polished! Alexander Gow’s low-key vocals, a touch reminiscent of Gomez’s Ian Ball, are definitely pleasant, breezy and polished. The record then continues to be pleasant, breezy and polished for the next 38 minutes, and then it stops.
Having driven over 50,000kms and played over 120 shows in 2009, it is no surprise that on return from recording in the US, OH MERCY hit the ground running. Now they are on the brink of a tour with Crowded House and Sally Seltmann, plus releasing their Keith St EP.
The colossal Pyramid Rock Festival is returning to Phillip Island for its seventh year in succession!
A pair of fundraising gigs will be held in Sydney and Melbourne to send off our Aussie musos heading to the US for the illustrious South By Southwest festival.
