We featured Confluence, another great local band, in our CPR Performance Studio last week. The math-rock quartet is heavy on guitar fretboard dexterity to match its twisting and turning melodies.

The Denver band stopped in prior to kicking off a U.S. tour that will include a performance at Boise's Treefort Music Festival. Jessi Whitten chatted with the band about the state of math rock in 2014, mixing pop music into their sound, and the historical significance of their band name.
