Naarm/Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Maple Glider has unveiled her second single, Good Thing. The release is accompanied by a stunning video, directed by Bridgette Winten.
The musical project of Tori Zietsch, the stunning track showcases the singers beautiful light and velvety vocals, soaring above a guitar led soundscape championed by sparsely strummed chords. Speaking of the track, Zietsch shares: “I wrote it out of a place of defeat. I was really heartbroken at this point, and very confused.”
The songs visual was made with Glider's creative collaborator and housemate Bridgette Winten. Filmed within the 5km radius around their Brunswick home, the clip was shot on Super 8, with Glider placed within beautiful surroundings, ranging from lush creek-beds or stark industrial wastelands.
Landing in Melbourne in her early 20s, Zietsch partnered up with her childhood friend, producer Daniel Pinkerton, forming the duo Seavera, pairing acoustic guitars and wonky uprights with dramatic electronics. They parted ways soon after releasing an EP in early 2018, with Zietsch moving to the seaside town of Brighton, U.K., where she began working on solo music.
After experiencing falling in and out of love, traveling extensively, writing non-stop, and basking in the lengthy European summer hours, she returned to Melbourne in late 2019 with a SoundCloud account full to capacity of demo uploads, launching the Maple Glider project.
