Maple Glider, the Naarm/Melbourne based singer-songwriter, is releasing her new album tomorrow, but for those of us who can't wait she's released one last pre-release single! "Do You" is Maple Glider (real name Tori Zietsch) showing off her captivating folk-pop. The new song isn't pushing any boundaries, but it's just nailing the genre expertly. "Do You" has a dreamlike feeling, and Zietsch's vocals just suck you in. It's not quite a mainstream version of folk-pop, but it's at the least folk-pop adjacent. If you're a fan of artists like Julia Jacklin or Lucy Dacus, you're sure to end up loving Maple Glider as well.
Maple Glider says of her new single:
“For me this song holds the feeling of being frustrated by someone who refuses to see who you are, no matter how much you put yourself in front of them, until eventually, you retreat. It’s also about the self-obsession that can come as a result of that, the fixation on identity, complicated feelings of inadequacy, and the search for meaning and significance in failing relationships. As always, there are many sides to the sphere, the ball just keeps spinning.”
You can watch the video for "Do You" below. I Get Into Trouble is due out October 13 on Partisan Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Maple Glider, check out the artist's website.
