Norwegian indie folk singer Siv Jakobsen unveils her charming new track 'How We Used To Love' alongside a video. The song was recently released through Nordic Mellow Records.
It is a fairly simple video but remains very personal, featuring Siv going about her daily life; wandering around her home drinking tea, napping on the sofa, driving in her car, walking her dog and catching a train; against an enchantingly sad soundtrack of soaring harmonies and minimal yet beautiful instrumentation. That sharp sense of melancholy is maximised by Siv's soft, hypnotic vocals alongside gently plucked acoustic guitar, charmingly fingered piano and upliftingly bowed violin. Siv admitted the lyrics for the track came to her during a moment of contemplative daydreaming while sitting in her car in a San Francisco traffic jam.
Siv Jakobsen released her debut EP 'For Those I Used To Know' in 2013 and has since caused quite a stir with her brand of sombre Nordic folk. Despite her sound, she is a naturally cheerful person which only adds to her appeal. She is currently on her UK January 2015 tour alongside close friend Sofia, with whom she became pals during her studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston.
