Siv Jakobsen releases single ‘How We Used To Love’!‏

January 12, 2015


For fans of: Damien Rice, Ane Brun, Laura Marling

 “…ruthlessly emotive to the point it should come with a warning label.”  – The Line Of Best Fit

Siv Jakobsen‘s single How We Used To Love is out now via Nordic Mellow Records. It is the most personal and intimate song she has ever written, and comes ahead of her UK tour with contemporary and friend Sofia.

The gorgeous video that accompanies the track premiered on The Line Of Best Fit and you can now watch it via Siv’s YouTube Channel.

How We Used To Love came to be when Siv, stuck in San Francisco traffic, drove into the car in front of her in an absent minded moment. This inspired the first couple of lines in the song and became a monologue she’d never dared say out loud. The track itself is dark and ethereal, with a string arrangement and vocal that is both cinematic and heartbreaking.

Siv’s tourmate, Sofia, has also been busy ahead of their UK tour, recording on camera an outstanding cover ofJessie J‘s ‘Do It Like A Dude’ with her father in front of the Chouf Mountains in Lebanon.

The video premiered on Gigslutz and you watch it now on Sofia’s YouTube channel.

Gigslutz also ran an in depth interview alongside the video about Sofia’s reasons behind choosing the song and the dangers posed by recording such a controversial track in a country that still legislates against homosexuality.
