Plus Ead Wood & Deadheading
Norwegian musician Siv Jakobsen ushers in a hushed and breathtaking reverence with her songwriting.
Her delicate vocals convey an emotive poignancy, underpinned by instrumental accompaniments that take in Jakobsen’s finger-picked guitar playing, soaring strings and striking harp and brass arrangements.
Now gearing up to release her third album ‘Gardening’, Jakobsen wrote the recent single ‘Romain’s Place’ whilst touring. The track, taken from her upcoming record highlights Jakobsen’s acute, affecting lyricism and her gracefully haunting folk intonations.
Jakobsen has also spent a lot of time on the road, playing shows alongside the likes of Damien Jurado, José González and Susanne Sundfør.

“Oslo-based singer-songwriter Siv Jakobsen makes ambient folk that swaddles you in its haunting yet gentle beauty.”
Our Culture Magazine
Described as “defiantly original” by Clash Magazine, Ead Wood debuted as a solo project before its reimagining as a four-piece in 2018. The Bristol quartet have since established themselves as titans of the folk scene through an onslaught of releases and energetic live shows – including a recent appearance supporting Surf Curse at SWX.
Their latest release, ‘People, Stories, World Etc’ shows the band delving further into the realms of sonic experimentation – trialling everything from melancholy lo-fi to driven electronica, with vocalist Ed’s contemplative and candid vocals delicately woven throughout.
Hailing from “the leafy dwellings of suburban Bristol,” Deadheading’s raucous indie rock is enchanted and honest. In listening to their music, it’s hard not to feel like a fly on the wall in their charming world of DIY recordings, distorted acoustic guitars and warped samples.
The trio’s output has been a sonic collage of excellently crafted pop songs buried beneath interjections of lo-fi grit, barely audible mutterings and the constant whirr of a tape recorder, culminating in an experience that feels like the frantic, jangle-pop equivalent of a found footage movie.
