PRAISE FOR Maple Glider

“No other folk artist has had a fully-formed and breathtaking debut album as Melbourne singer-songwriter Tori Zietsch”


“ietsch’s sparse, haunting folk hammers home the ephemerality of life and the inevitability of leaving... a statement of survival, a falling away from comfort to find oneself”

The Guardian (Best Australian Albums of 2021)

“The Melbourne-based songwriter’s debut is sparse and hypnotic, drawing connections between her experiences of leaving a relationship and leaving a religious upbringing”

Pitchfork (7.4)

“A piece that tries to unravel the intricacies of a religious upbringing and a relationship, both of which kept her from being her true self”

Bob Boilen (NPR)

“For someone so new, she really knows how to mainline straight to your heart and inhabit a very special emotional space really quickly”


“They say a debut album is a lifetime in the making. ‘To Enjoy’ vaults Maple Glider straight into the pantheon of beguiling modern indie folk/rock acts with Julia Jacklin, Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker and Aldous Harding”


“Some artists grab you from the first moment you hear them. For many music lovers, Tori Zeitsch has been one of those artists... Grasping the beauty and brilliance of Maple Glider's debut album will take no time or effort. It's a refined collection of deep songs written and played with enviable maturity and flair”

I Get Into Trouble LP

Oct 13 via Pieater / Partisan Records


‘Two Years’ is out now via Pieater / Partisan Records, buy/stream it here.

Maple Glider’s second album I Get Into Trouble is due for release on October 13, and today she shares a fifth taste of the record in new single ‘Two Years’. LISTEN HERE + PRE-SAVE LP HERE.

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.
