ABSOLUTExclusive: Sianvar Song Premiere

Posted by: Jack Appleby (12/11/13)
I mean, I could describe Sianvar with music writer's toolbox of buzzy adjectives, but listing the line-up should suffice. You've got Dance Gavin Dance's Will Swan, A Lot Like Birds' Joe Arrington and Michael Littlefield, Hail The Sun's Donovan Melero, and Stolas' Sergio Medina; five guys with signature sounds, teaming up for something that accentuates their individual talents while creating something a bit different than you'd expect. Their self-titled EP releases January 5, but we've got "Chest Pressure" today - take a listen in the replies, pre-order the EP on their BandCamp, & catch the band on tour with A Lot Like Birds, Stolas, and The Venetia Fair next month.

Get sort of a Circa vibe from it at certain points (Juturna era). Definitely sounds better than the new DGD to me.

I dig this a lot mainly because it has the feel of dance and a lot like birds... only without the screaming through the whole thing

Those DGD/A lot like birds guys are talented, but I usually wonder if they could be much more successful musically if they focused all their energy and skills into one endeavor instead of channeling it through multiple releases. Blend all the styles these guys have attempted separately over the years and get the best out of each one and they may even have a band that leaves a lasting impression.

This tune is great and the circa vibe is definitely there.

I think each has its own sound. DGD is the main focus for those guys despite all the side projects and it shows, and ALLB is very different from DGD (especially this last album).

Wondering what kind of venue "Sons of Herman Hall" is.
