“The high-powered arrangements [of “Shallow Digger”] remind me of Led Zeppelin’s thunderous “Immigrant Song.” NPR, Bob Boilen
” …arresting and forceful. It is folk music at its best.” Earmilk
“This brooding track … is just like the ocean—constantly rising, swelling, and falling.” NYLON
“Soothing sound and unique style” Paste Magazine

Earlier this year, Norwegian indie-folk artist Siv Jakobsen announced her highly anticipated full-length debut LP, The Nordic Mellow. Today, Jakobsen shares a stunning live acoustic video performing album track “Berry and Whythe” via Earmilk. The session was recorded at Urchin Studios in Hackney, London.

Watch Siv Jakobsen perform “Berry and Whythe”

Siv Jakobsen recently spent time at Old Granada Studios in Manchester City Centre for a session with Low Four – performing two stunningly beautiful and intimately tense tracks from her upcoming release. Previously, Jakobsen shared album track Shallow Diggerwith NPR , following the release of album cut “Like I Used To,” featuring Andrew Davie of Bear’s Den, earlier this year. The Nordic Mellow is an intense work, loaded with the intimacy of Jakobsen’s delicate voice, acoustic guitar, strings and unfiltered lyrics.

Jakobsen’ 2015 The Lingering EP, streamed over ten million times, is a potent seven-track introduction which wastes no time in transporting the listener, with a rare openness, into her world. Her debut touches on similar themes, but viewed from another place. The Nordic Mellow was recorded at London’s Urchin Studios, under the masterful hand of producer Matt Ingram (Laura Marling, The Staves) and engineer Dan Cox (Thurston Moore, Lianne La Havas). With a warmth disparate to the sub-zero climate from which she hails, the 10-song collection is a testament to Siv’s bold lyricism and stunning vocal ability, transporting the listener into her world from the very first note.

Jakobsen was raised in Asker, just outside of Oslo and went on to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. An international commodity, Siv has performed at prestigious festivals such as The Great Escape (UK) & Eurosonic (NL), and will tour internationally throughout the summer. Stay tuned for opportunities to experience Siv Jakobsen live in the US.
