Car Seat Headrest
With Naked Giants
Rock, Indie
Car Seat Headrest is Will Toledo, who as a teenager in Virginia started recording his own music on a laptop in his family's car. He uploaded a bunch of his pop songs to Bandcamp in 2010. They didn't go anywhere, but as he experimented with electronic insertions and distortions, his self-produced albums attracted the notice of a pop music critic for The New Yorker magazine, who described Toledo as an "oldies-obsessed pop prodigy perfecting his Beatles and Beach Boys melodies, mostly playing all the instruments himself." Now a fully fledged adult, Toledo has a band and has released an album's worth of material under the Matador label, "Teens of Style." His first studio album, "Teens of Denial," was released in 2016.

This bleeds through into her own unique style of music, calling out lyrics with a mix of heartbreak and damaged indifference.
