00:00 | Car Seat Headrest is the project of Seattle artist Will Toledo. With a vision that is both sweeping in scope and intimately personal, Car Seat Headrest embodies the DIY ethos at its best. The songs are often long and complex, but they are anchored in irresistible melodies and a piercing emotional directness. Dispersed across the globe, Car Seat Headrest has an intensely dedicated fanbase of several thousand internet denizens who deeply connect with Will's startlingly honest and unfiltered approach to writing and performing.
00:00 | Formed in 2015, the Seattle trio – guitarist/vocalist Grant Mullen, bassist/vocalist Gianni Aiello and drummer Henry LaVallee – put out debut EP R.I.P. the following year and have been steadily building up their reputation as a live act in the meantime, and having as much fun as possible while doing it. Because as much as the three-piece – who are all in their very early 20s now – have their heads screwed on and are fiercely intelligent people, they also want to let loose and enjoy being in a band. After all, that?s kind of what being in a band with your closest friends is all about.
"Performing on a stage has been very purpose-giving,? says LaVallee. ?Being in a group of people all experiencing music together brings a strong sense of community, which excites me. Hopefully going forward we?ll be playing to more and more people. I want us to spread respect and fun rock?n?roll music to a whole lot of people. That just seems like a good deal all around"
