Norway-born Berklee College of Music alumni Siv Jakobsen’s music is beautifully mellow filled with the deft use of music pillars like dynamics, silence and space combining lyrics that feel equal to vulnerable diary-entry-like thoughts on the world.
Lo-fi finger picked-guitar, delicate piano lines and warm yet raw stings amalgamated with Siv’s delicate, accentuating vocals create a juxtaposition for listeners mixing aural bliss with ache-inducing melancholy… or as The Line of Best Fit poetically put it “Jakobsen tears your ribcage open to pluck out your still-beating heart; you’ll be stunned and haunted, but somehow, Jakobsen makes you believe that everything will be okay anyway”
With strong references to the likes of Laura Marling and Ane Brun, Siv invites us to be a fly on the wall of her old 6’x7’ “bed with a door” room in Brooklyn, where her most recent batch of material was crafted, sharing some of her most private and intimate moments.
The release of ‘Dark’ coincides with a run of UK dates (to be announced shortly) - this will be Siv’s second trip to the UK already in 2015 following a successful tour in January to play a string of live shows including a set for Sofar Sound and record a session for the much-loved Daytrotter.
Siv Jakobsen’s new single ‘Dark’ is released 13/04/15 via The Nordic Mellow.
