About Car Seat Headrest

While attending junior high school in Leesburg, Virginia, Will Toledo played in the student symphony band and developed an interest in music theory. ∙ Toledo was so self-conscious about his early lo-fi home recordings that he self-released them with such disclaimers as “not very good” and “just awful s**t.” ∙ He came up with the name Car Seat Headrest after realizing that he preferred to record vocals in his car rather than in his home studio. ∙ Before signing a record deal, Toledo self-released a dozen albums online. ∙ For 2020’s Making a Door Less Open, Toledo unveiled his alternate persona, Trait, whose face was hidden behind a gas mask with blinking LED lights in the eyeholes.
