PREMIERE: Mr. Gnome — "Melted Rainbow"

Share on Tumblr

Mr. Gnome are gearing up to release The Heart of a Dark Star next month, and today we're thrilled to premiere the album's latest offering, "Melted Rainbow." The new song shows an aggressive yet insanely catchy side to the Cleveland-based indie rock duo and makes us even more excited about the upcoming album. Stream the track above.

"'Melted Rainbow' was the first song we recorded in the session that ended up becoming The Heart of a Dark Star," the band reveals. "It was the first step towards the stylistic approach we ended up taking on this album. The orchestration and production really ended up being a template for the rest of what was to come. This was the first wholly self-produced and self-recorded album we've made, which was a very liberating experience, but at times a bit daunting. The lyrics on the chorus of 'Melted Rainbow' ("We can't explain just where we are right now") are fitting because we really didn't know where we were going at the time and what kind of record we were going to make."

The Heart of a Dark Star is slated for a November 18 release via Mr. Gnome's own DIY label, El Marko Records, and can be pre-ordered here. The two-piece set out on a North American tour next month. Check out a full list of dates below.
