Lead by super-cool frontman Alexander Gow, Oh Mercy return with a new album this Friday, August 24 – and the most eye-catching album artwork you’ll see all year. While the music on Deep Heat doesn’t quite match the carnival-style artwork of the cover, it’s a concise collection of summery grooves, united by Gow’s disaffected Julian Casablancas-esque drawl. Head straight to track nine for irresistible first single Drums, and if you like what you hear, catch the band on their September/October national tour.
