Maple Glider

Melbourne-based singer-songwriter, Maple Glider, has announced her link up with Partisan Records (Laura Marling, Fela Kuti, IDLES, Fontaines D.C.) in partnership with the Australian label, Pieater. In celebration of the news, Maple Glider, aka Tori Ziestch, has also shared a new single and video for ‘Good Thing’ – a song borne of that ‘frozen and fretful time just before you’re going to hurt someone you have loved by leaving them’. Ziestch explains:

“I wrote this song out of a place of defeat. I was really heartbroken at this point, and very confused. I like the feeling of my independence and I think I was afraid of putting energy into the wrong people. Sometimes we make decisions out of fear and sometimes it’s because we know that it is the best decision to make. Those lines can get very blurry.”

The accompanying video was made with creative collaborator and housemate Bridgette Winten in the 5km radius around their Brunswick, Melbourne home – limited due to Covid lockdown measures. Working with colour and contrast, and shot on Super 8, Maple Glider plays off her surroundings, whether it’s lush creek-beds or stark industrial wastelands.
