WATCH: Siv Jakobsen - ‘Fight or Flight’

I'm finding myself listening to a lot of dreamy, folk-y music at the moment (think Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, Lucy Rose and the like.) The world is a little bit crazy and these genres can really help to bring some relaxation and slow everything down. Where better to look than Siv Jakobsen, who recently shared the third and final single from upcoming album A Temporary Soothing. The album has unfortunately been pushed back until 21st August, with tour dates now taking place in September - we'll just have to be patient!

Talking about the new track, Siv said that "I had this image of a very old couple lying in bed together - still and stuck to the bed-frame, at the end of their life, taking their final breaths together. The song developed into a broader look upon what it is to stay with someone forever, to make that decision and be certain about it. To love someone and to receive love isn't always easy, and giving yourself to someone so completely can be frightening and all consuming." In a post online she explained that the video was shot and directed by Jorgen Bare while they were touring in Japan last year - showing footage of their travels in Tokyo and the mountain village Hijiori.
