Sydney pop starlet Maples recently saw her debut single ‘Stars’ serviced to Aussie radio networks.
And though we didn’t feature it on the site at the time, we’re certainly not going to make the same mistake with the video for the track, which premiered yesterday.
The opening scene was filmed at Mount Victoria in the Blue Mountains on a frosty morning. It, and the home where most of the rest of the clip is set, are places that hold a special place in Maples’ (real name Gabby Huber) heart.
“The house where we filmed was built by my late great Uncle Fred. He lived there with my Aunt Honey and the bedroom where we filmed was the very room he passed on,” Maples reveals. “It was very special to be back in the house I had spent so many weekends as an infant. The driveway at the property was also lined with Maple trees, a memory I am very fond of. The house was also meant to represent suppression, being confined and kept within walls, unable to break free. The song is after all about suppression, and the urge to break free and soar.”
Hopeful choruses, crisp vocals and a driving electronic pop beat meld together to create a piece that’s all class.
