Maple Glider shares shifting new single ‘Two Years’
PRAISE FOR Maple Glider
For You And All The Songs We Loved
It’s a fresh flavour for fans of singer-songwriter Tori Zietsch – snaky drums and plucky bass shimmy the verses along in a tight groove. And just like the uncertainty of the relationship being sung about, the mood abruptly shifts several times throughout the song, across dripping choruses and a wafting bridge.
Says Zietsch, “I remember having the need to write this song at the moment I was experiencing these uncertain feelings, but being unable to do so in private… This was a time of life where I got swept up into the clouds, and didn’t feel the ground for a long time. Even listening to the song now I can feel the self-doubt in my lyrics, the indecision in the music, the attempt to find the sweetness amongst what was ultimately an incredibly claustrophobic experience.”
‘Two Years’ joins previously released singles ‘Don’t Kiss Me‘, ‘Dinah‘ and Double A-Side ‘You At The Top Of The Driveway / You’re Gonna Be A Daddy‘, and I Get Into Trouble will be released on Pieater (Big Scary, #1 Dads) in Aus/NZ, and Partisan Records (Fontaines D.C., Cigarettes After Sex, PJ Harvey) for the rest-of-world. The first pressing is on neon pink vinyl, and there are some fun pre-order specials floating around – for those ordering from Maple Glider’s Bandcamp you can bundle in a limited edition thong, and those ordering from JB Hi-Fi can score a signed and numbered lyric sheet for free.
Tomorrow, Maple Glider begins her first UK/EU tour, performing solo, including two sold-out London dates, and appearing at Reeperbahn Festival. Today she also announces her debut plays in the USA, with dates in Los Angeles and New York City. See all tour routing details BELOW.
