Earlier this year, Jakobsen took the unusual step of releasing the first half of her forthcoming album 'Gardening' before its January 2023 release. Given that she herself has described the writing process - and therefore the title - as her own 'emotional gardening', perhaps her motivation for the split was to avoid the full release overwhelming with its outpouring of feelings; that would certainly have been a risk, as each track - in fact, each lyric - is simultaneously glorious but equally worthy of full consideration and reflection.
This week sees Jakobsen arrive in the UK for a run of support dates. It is testament to her versatility that the match, Chicago's Beach Bunny, are not an obvious bedmate with their punchy, raucous bubblegum punk. Many of their dates have sold out in advance and are now returns only, but if you are lucky enough to be heading along then you need to prioritise arriving in time to indulge in the glory of Siv Jakobsen.
The remaining dates of the run are shown below:
11th - SWX, Bristol
12th - O2 Ritz, Manchester
14th - Empire Music Hall, Belfast
15th - Vicar Street, Dublin
16th - SWG3, Glasgow
