Car Seat Headrest Shares Single "Martin"

Car Seat Headrest share a new song, “Martin,” today—listen here and watch the band-made lyric video, with bandleader Will Toledo in character as Trait, here. The track, one of Toledo’s favorite songs he’s ever written, is taken from the band’s forthcoming new album Making A Door Less Open, set for release May 1 on Matador Records. Created over the course of four years, Making a Door Less Open is the result of a fruitful “collaboration” between Car Seat Headrest, led by Will Toledo, and 1 Trait Danger, a CSH electronic side project consisting of drummer Andrew Katz and Toledo’s alternate persona, Trait.

Making A Door Less Open—Car Seat Headrest’s first set of brand new songs since 2016’s Teens Of Denial—sees Toledo embarking on new and imaginative roads to songwriting and recording, placing emphasis on the individual songs, each with its own “special energy,” rather than attempting to draw a coherent storyteller narrative through the album as he has in the past, resulting in his most dynamic and open-ended work to date.
