This record feels like a therapy session for Maple Glider, the publication of diary entries from her younger self as she opens up about her relationship with her body, consent, her Christian childhood and relationships as a whole. It's a lyrics first record with a backdrop of indie folk pop lilting and providing an uplifting cathartic nature to the topics.
Maple Glider, aka Melbourne/Naarm-based artist Tori Zietsch, returns with new album ‘I Get Into Trouble,’ the follow-up to her stunning 2021 debut ‘To Enjoy is the Only Thing.’ Due in October 2023, ‘I Get Into Trouble’ sees Zietsch delve into her Christian childhood, exploring her relationship to her body, consent, shame, and the death of relationships, both romantic and familial. Heartbreaking at times, the songs ultimately paint a hopeful picture, shining a light on new life, new love, and the desire to find peace and connection with these experiences. While Maple Glider’s delicate brand of sneakily catchy psych-folk has never sounded sharper, the music centers around the lyrics, exploring these deeply personal themes and often serving as a self-catharsis, brought to vivid life by the beauty of Zietsch's artistry and wry sense of dark humor.
