Maple Glider

I Get Into Trouble

    Maple Glider is Naarm/Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Tori Zietsch.

    On her sophomore album 'I Get Into Trouble', Tori takes her songwriting to another level while she delves into her Christian childhood, exploring topics such as her relationship to her body, consent and shame, as well as the death of relationships, both romantic and familial. Heartbreaking at times, the songs ultimately paint a hopeful picture, shining a light on new life, new love, and the desire to find peace and connection with these experiences.

    Ultimately, 'I Get Into Trouble' is the sound of alchemized pain. In each song, Zietsch transmutes tribulation and confusion into clarity and deep insight. She combines the infectious folk-pop hooks of her debut with a sense of scape and scope.

    'I Get Into Trouble' follows Maple Glider's acclaimed 2021 debut 'To Enjoy is the Only Thing', a deeply personal project which earned her a performance on NPR's Tiny Desk, as well as praise from Pitchfork ("hypnotic"), Paper ("sublime"), Stereogum ("some voices in indie just hit home") and Rolling Stone (“one of the most accomplished debut albums in recent years.”).


    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: A superb return for Tori Zietsch, bringing the woozy off-kilter Americana sound we loved from her 2021 debut and broadening the horizons into a widescreen, majestic display. It's both hugely cinematic and unfalteringly relatable, a triumph of every sort. Lovely.

    To Enjoy Is The Only Thing

      Maple Glider is Naarm/Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Tori Zietsch. On debut album To Enjoy is the Only Thing, Zietsch's vocals melt into layers of plucked acoustic guitar and lulling piano, drawing on the sombre styles of folk contemporaries with a stark tenderness and introspection that assumes the listener is inside her bedroom as she plays for herself. Striking emotionality is at the centre of this performance, leaning into an intimacy that is achieved by way of deeply personal reflections and velvety melodic compositions.

      In Tori's words: "To me, To Enjoy is the Only Thing feels like walking past tinsel-covered trees in mid-September, swimming along the calanques in the south of France, frost on the hood of a car, darkness at 4pm, lightness until 10pm, Sibylle Baier’s Colour Green, Devendra Banhart’s Ma, Adrianne Lenker’s a-sides, a muted feeling, the perpetual grey fog that swallows the Silver Coast in Portugal, an ugly green dress, the color red, red wine, red blood, red lips, the red of a cardinal’s robe, Switzerland, my mother’s diaries, a coroner’s report, the sun on my face, the end of love."

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: 'To Enjoy...' absolutely swims with a wealth of influences from tender 60's folk and country to more exuberant soulful moments that wouldn't feel out of place in a dimly lit club, smoke rising from the tables. It's evocative and brimming with beauty, a wonderfully realised gem.
