"...ruthlessly emotive to the point it should come with a warning label." - The Line of Best Fit
Siv’s music is beautifully mellow, much like diary-entries - filled with unfiltered thoughts and reflections. With references to Laura Marling and Ane Brun, listening to her music is like being a fly on the wall while she sings you her secrets. She released the 7-track EP "The Lingering" in May of 2015, to praise from several national and international publications, including Norways biggest newspaper, VG. She spent the summer of 2016 in London with producer and drummer Matt Ingram (Laura Marling, The Staves) making her debut album, which is set for release in 2017. "Like I Used To,"the first single off of her debut album, was released on March 31st 2017. Gold Flake Paint stated the following about the single:
"Shaped beautifully by Jakobsen’s ever-captivating words, ways, and intonations, the new single is a weighty reflection of a relationship falling apart handled with staggering grace; two eyes fixed on the future while the here-and-now crumbles all around»
A captivating live performer, Siv has had the honor of supporting several renowned artists, including Bear's Den, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Damien Jurado, Highasakite, SOAK and Thomas Dybdahl.
After being praised by many renowned music-blogs, including Earmilk, Paste Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit, The 405 and Clash Magazine, receiving airplay on several internationally renowned radio stations, including the UK’s BBC 6 Music and XFM, and with well over 7.000.000 streams on Spotify alone, this young Norwegian is steadily making waves in the singer-songwriter world.
