Sianvar is made up of artists from some of post-hardcore’s most respected bands so my expectations of this debut album were pretty high. Although the standard of individual performances is really high, it doesn’t come together as a cohesive package.

When a band consists of genre heavyweights like drummer Joseph Arrington (A Lot Like Birds), Michael Franzino (A Lot Like Birds), guitarist Sergio Medina (Stolas) and vocalist Donovan Melero (Hail the Sun), the minimum you’d expect is superb musicianship and ‘Stay Lost’ certainly delivers in this regard.
