From Jake's report of Day 5 of the CMJ Music Marathon 2015: "Next was Nashville-based, post-hardcore trio Gnarwhal. They put out an amazing four way split EP with Ovlov, Woozy and Ex-Breathers, which I highly recommend you listening to. They're a loud-ass math rock band, bringing me back to the days of Fiasco and Tera Melos. They've got a very Nashville atmosphere to them as well, with their long hair, playing everything twice as fast as it needs to be played, and stopping maybe once during the set to tell people who they were. They're a powerhouse, that's for sure."
