Considering Siv Jakobsen is a Norwegian artist based in Norway I’ve probably done well to catch her live five times already, I was however annoyed to have missed the chance to make that six last week when she supported Benjamin Francis Leftwich at Islington’s Assembly Hall (I had work commitments - yay!).
I’m taking solace today in a live version of an as yet unreleased track “To Leave You”, a track that surmises Siv’s ability to captivate with little more than soft acoustic plucks, confessional words and quivering voice, the result here, recorded on London's fine streets, is delicate but resonates fully. Come back soon please.
Last years' The Lingering EP is magical, don't miss it - bandcamp.
