Gnarfunkel is a Vancouver-based band making waves with their electrifying live shows and unique melangé of musical styles. Fronted by two animalistic lead singers and backed by a tight, funky rhythm section, they take audiences on an energetic journey through time and space. With their sound incorporating elements of pop, blues, hip hop, Latin and psychedelia, this band lives up to the Urban Dictionary definition of gnarfunkel and are “gnarly to a funky extreme”.
Gnarfunkel exploded onto the scene in 2019 with a handful of sold out shows in Vancouver. They followed this with a number of dates throughout BC including Tofino, Victoria, Nanaimo, Kelowna and even an off-grid festival on a secret island in backwoods Squamish. They released their first two singles in 2019, recorded under the guidance of Juno-nominated producer Tom Dobrzanski. Collectively these two tracks, “Painter’s Block” and “Take Me to the Ocean” have surpassed 10K streams online. They capped off their first year with a packed show at the legendary Fox Cabaret, a taste of which can be experienced in the live video filmed that night ~ https://youtu.be/biw8ToAzRTY
Gnarfunkel plans to return to the studio in 2020 to record more music. They’re also planning a number of tour dates throughout BC as well as Eastern Canada.
