For fans of: Ane Brun, Laura Marling, Rachel Sermanni, Damien Rice
Siv Jakobsen has released her second single Dark via Nordic Mellow Records. It is available to buy digitally oniTunes.

A follow up to the intimate How We Used To Love, Siv’s new single Dark explores themes of mortality, loneliness and existential angst. The video for the single premiered on The Line Of Best Fit and you can watch it now via Siv’sYouTube channel.

You can also stream the single via the ABoF SoundCloud page.

Dark is a deeply sad, yet beautiful song. Siv’s ability to capture and convey emotion with her voice, combined with heart piercing lyrics, demonstrate once again that she is a songwriter who, one day, could stand proudly beside inspirational artists such as Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez, as well as her contemporaries Ane Brun and Laura Marling.

Siv has been performing in Europe and the US since 2011, creating emotive music that embraces the themes of melancholy and sadness. However, there is a distinct contrast between her music and stage persona, as Siv’s naturally sunny personality juxtaposes beautifully with her brooding music, making it all the more effective in a live setting. She honed her talent while living in a tiny apartment in Brooklyn which she describes as “a door with a bed”, firmly immersing herself into the world of the struggling artist and challenging herself to reach greater heights.

You can catch Siv’s enchanting live show when she plays The Alternative Escape at The Fishbowl, Brighton, on15th May 2015 as part of this year’s The Great Escape Festival.

With an EP planned for the summer, and support for her previous single from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit andFolk Radio UK, 2015 looks set to be Siv’s biggest year yet.

Dark is released via Nordic Mellow Records and available to buy digitally on iTunes, Amazon and BandCamp.
