Mr. Gnome (stylized as mr. Gnome) is an alternative art rock married duo from Cleveland, Ohio.[1] Their eclectic oeuvre has been characterized as "an arresting mix of menace and mellifluousness," and "intriguing, theatrical."[2] Nicole Barille notes of their stand-alone song Let The City Sail Away that as with many of her lyrics, "I tend to write about situations that are moments away from impending disaster." [3] Mentioned in Rolling Stone in 2011 as a band to watch,[4] their fourth and latest album, The Heart of a Dark Star, was reviewed by NPR as being "a satisfying, conceptually ambitious work," "a raw, romantic sound [which they have] expanded and refined over several records." [5]
