Video: Siv Jakobsen – A Feeling Felt or A Feeling Made

Siv Jakobsen is a Norwegian singer songwriter that somewhat breaks the mold. Her style is minimalist. Her vocals are unique and her lyrics poetic – all exemplified in her new video A Feeling Felt or A Feeling Made.

By Graeme Smith

The track is built on an echoing electric guitar refrain which provides a foundation from which Siv meditates. “I wonder if loneliness a feeling felt or a feeling made” she ponders in the chorus. It’s a question without answer and a significant one.

There are traces of Joanna Newsom’s style in what Siv creates but it’s an imperfect comparison. Her art stands alone and is indisputably beautiful. Check out the video for A Feeling Felt or A Feeling Made below.
