Confluence may be called “math rock” on the surface, but going through the tempos and musical equations is only a part of what this Denver band does and can do, as you can hear by their newly released single titled “The Only Thing Constant”.

Math rockers Confluence
… okay, the first part of this sentences comes off like bullshit, doesn’t it? Yes, Confluence rock and are rockers. But are they “math rockers”? That sounds like some dumb shit moves right there, and that people who listen to “math rockers” are part of the math rock movement. I’d like to think there will not be a movement, but rather a continuation of bands who like to get mathematical with their music, such as Confluence, who are about to release a series of singles throughout 2014 and have touring plans as well. One of those singles is for the song “Awaiting”, the video of which you can watch above.
As for those touring plans, dates have not been announced but the tour will be during the spring.
Denver has a number of things going for them. Outside of being within the state with positive marijuana laws, they are also the home of math rockers Confluence, but does the tag “math rockers” sound corny? Perhaps it does, but if it’s a lure that helps to welcome you into their fold and let you know what they may sound like, then the tag works before you toss it out and call them whatever is comfortable for you. Rather than bombard you with sounds, they’re going to offer tracks one by one. Confluence are taking the singles path, beginning with “Awaiting”, which you may stream or download below.
The group have a bit more recording to do but are planning on hitting the road during the spring.
