Norwegian indie-folk singer-songwriter Siv Jakobsen is back to follow-up her under-the-radar 2017 success “The Nordic Mellow”. “Fear the Fear” is the first single from her forthcoming second LP, which features collaborations with a handful of great musicians Siv has come to love such as producer Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Nick Mulvey) and mixing engineer Zach Hanson (Bon Iver, Tallest Man on Earth, Waxahatchee). The record is a beautifully intimate exploration of feelings of fear, anxiety, change and the struggle between being healthy and being a productive artist that represents a huge step forward for the burgeoning singer-songwriter. Siv’s exploration of these themes is never more relevant than in a time where just existing represents a constant battle with feelings of anxiety and fear. With her music she makes you feel seen, feel understood and temporarily soothed.
