With four name changes under their belt in less than a year, the Santa Rosa, California, quartet are still regaining their footing after the demise of their previous groups. Still, Couteaux have a solid vision, one inspired by Dance Gavin Dance, Circa Survive and other progressive-minded bands. “Couteaux [take] the melodic and beautiful themes of post-rock and give them more structure and edge with the distortion of alternative rock and post-hardcore,” says guitarist Nico Molinari. “We also borrow a lot from math rock with our use of guitar tapping, which makes it easier to use odd time signatures tastefully.”
