LISTEN: Siv Jakobsen - 'Birthday'

With my birthday impending next week, it'd be rude not to share a track called Birthday... right? I was delighted to see Siv Jakobsen was returning last month, and when I'm just about getting over the stunner Most Of The Time she's back with another new track. Aaaaaaaagh. Brilliant - and relatable - as ever! She's also sharing details of three UK/EU shows this September, including London's The Slaughtered Lamb on 29th. 

On the track, Siv shares: "I imagine a vast pool of ended relationships where both parties sit at their own gloomy ends, greatly disliking or even hating the other. I wanted to write a song with this in mind, that there are often two deflated and angry hearts involved, both feeling the same anger, the same sadness.

The song is also a retrospective look at a hard time in my life - my 25th birthday - with a strong realisation that I would never want to go back, no matter the circumstances. To me it encapsulates a mutual feeling of wasted effort and time toward something that was doomed to fail from the beginning."
