Ahead of the release of her new LP I Get Into Trouble this Friday, October 13, Maple Glider has shared one more track, ‘Do You’. Bridgette Winten and Tom Dunphy, who were also behind the videos for previous singles ‘Dinah’ and ‘You’re Gonna Be a Daddy’, made its accompanying visual, which you can check out below.
“For me this song holds the feeling of being frustrated by someone who refuses to see who you are, no matter how much you put yourself in front of them, until eventually, you retreat,” Glider explained in a statement. “It’s also about the self-obsession that can come as a result of that, the fixation on identity, complicated feelings of inadequacy, and the search for meaning and significance in failing relationships. As always, there are many sides to the sphere, the ball just keeps spinning.”
“I wanted to capture those feelings of loneliness and connectedness I had in those first couple of years in the city,” she added. “The nice fun bits and also the strange and sad bits. All the confusion of moving to a new place and really feeling like you are leaving an old life behind. But also how attempting to separate yourself completely from your past can also make it so much harder to recognise where you need growth. It’s really just a very emotional song and I think Bridgette in particular wanted to capture the sadness of it in a nostalgic and beautiful way.”
