Car Seat Headrest Debut Alter-Ego in 'Martin' Lyric Video

Will Toledo’s Car Seat Headrest project will be releasing a new album, Making a Door Less Open, on 1st Matador Records. Made over the course of four years, the album is a collaboration between Toledo and 1 Trait Danger, an “electronic side project” consisting of drummer Andrew Katz and Toledo’s “alternate persona,” Trait.

On Monday, Toledo released a new single from the album, titled “Martin.” He appears in the lyric video as his alter-ego Trait, washing the dishes — an appropriate activity during these pandemic times.

I wanted to make something that was different from my previous records and I struggled to figure out how to do that,” Toledo wrote of the album in a statement. “I realized that because the way I listened to music had changed, I had to change the way I wrote music as well. I was listening less and less to albums and more and more to individual songs, songs from all over the place, every few days finding a new one that seemed to have a special energy. I thought that if I could make an album full of songs that had a special energy, each one unique and different in its vision, then that would be a good thing.”

Making a Door Less Open will include the previously released single, “Can’t Cool Me Down.” Car Seat Headrest’s last album was 2016’s Teens of Denial.
