Melbourne artist Maple Glider delivers a pensive performance on her newest single ‘Good Thing’.
It’s in moments of personal growth and achievement that we seem to reflect most deeply upon ourselves. Having just signed to Partisan Records in partnership with Australian label Pieater, Maple Glider, the project of Tori Ziestch, takes a moment to reflect upon her own fear of misplacing her energy and trust on ‘Good Thing’. Zietsch explains:
“I wrote this song out of a place of defeat. I was really heartbroken at this point and very confused. I like the feeling of my independence and I think I was afraid of putting energy into the wrong people. Sometimes we make decisions out of fear and sometimes it’s because we know that it is the best decision to make. Those lines can get very blurry.”
A backdrop of hushed guitars gradually builds into a more driving collection of percussion and piano keys, as Maple Glider’s vocals stand out throughout the entire track, rising into bellowing cries and then immediately into gentle euphonious warbles. ‘Good Thing’ delivers an equally uplifting yet poignant performance, making for a truly magnificent piece of indie-folk.
