Looking back at 2013: Funemployed (EP) by Gnarwolves
Gnarwolves are three happy go lucky punks from Brighton who make super fast, super catchy punk rock with big pop melodies! Last year, they released an aboustely storming EP called ‘Cru’ and spent the most of the year touring its arse off. This year, they’ve done a similar thing and managed to capture the hearts of punk rock kids around the world Although Funemployed is a bit shorter in length than Cru it still packs a hell of a punch, with perhaps more of focus of bigger melodies and more epic sounding arrangements. I loved the harmonies on the Cru record, a lot punk bands just wanna be loud and fast with maybe a catchy hook thrown in, but Gnarwolves seem to put some real thought into arrangements and their vocals in particular are great; there’s some killer harmonies on this record! It’s this knack for writing hit punk jam’s and insatiable thirst for touring that makes them one of the most exciting and well deserved bands in the UK right now. Bring on the full length!
