“Ahead of the pack as an imaginative singer-songwriter, capable of crafting dynamic indie rock.” - Pitchfork (Best New Music)
“A talent to be reckoned with.” - Rolling Stone (4/5 stars)
"Car Seat Headrest’s Teens of Denial is not just the rock album of the year, but may be the emergence of a new musical genius." - The Saturday Paper
Will Toledo of CAR SEAT HEADREST is coming to Australia for the very first time for the Laneway tour.
Before signing to Matador Records in 2014, the 23 year old artist had already crafted an 11 album catalogue of staggering depth, all self-released on Bandcamp. His formal studio debut, 2016’s Teens of Denial, has everything you want from a rock album within one song. Check out album opener ‘Fill In the Blank’. With inspired guitar riffs, ambitious indie-rock anthems, and clever reflections of 20-something life, Teens of Denial is one of the best albums of the year. Live, Car Seat Headrest performs with a full band.
For The Gasometer Hotel show, Car Seat Headrest will be supported by low-fi indie pop act Jarrow, who recently shared his outstanding debut LP 2003 Dream.
