Steve Miller Band (SMB): 8.30 - 9.00pm
Pearls: 9.20 - 10.00pm
Oh Mercy: 10.30 - 11.30pm
Oh Mercy return with their brand new single 'Sandy', announcing two special shows in Melbourne & Sydney to celebrate. Joining Oh Mercy on their first band shows in 2015 will be fellow Melbourne band, Pearls.
Says songwriter Alex Gow of the single: “Sandy is a fast song. Faster than the other ones. Or slower. It really just depends on how you count the bars. And which song you compare it to. Faster than a real slow song. Slower than a real fast one. Sandy is a stuck in the middle kind of song. I wrote it in Nashville. I was walking to a Mexican restaurant. It's about self loathing. And self loathing by way of resenting someone who loves you. Just for loving you! (what a world!!!). It's a little about needing it. But wishing you didn’t need it. In the end you're god damn glad you got it.”
'Sandy’ will be available digitally this coming Friday March 13 and available to pre-order as a limited edition white vinyl 7". The 7” single also features a second unreleased album track, "Iron Cross”. Fans that pre-order the vinyl can also get a ticket to one of the very first band shows for 2015 in Sydney or Melbourne.
Alex Gow recently returned home to Melbourne from the States where he spent time in Nashville, Portland and Los Angeles, disconnected and rootless - a ‘romantic saboteur’ creating his forthcoming album.
