Norwegian indie folk songstress Siv Jakobsen has released ”Like I Used To,” the first track from her debut LP, slated for release later this year. Both the single and album were recorded over the summer 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). Jakobsen, who hails from Asker, a town just outside of Oslo, attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, and released The Lingering EP in 2015, which has garnered over seven million streams on Spotify.
Featuring Andrew Davie of Bear’s Den, the single draws the listener into an intimate world created and warmly furnished by her emotively tender vocals–hers is the kind of voice that lightly dances across the surface of your skin yet leaves an indelible, lasting impression at the same time. Give it a spin:
