The lead single Can’t Cool Me Down off of the upcoming full length Making A Door Less Open by indie pop group Car Seat Headrest due out May 1, 2020 on Matador Records is an early insight into what we can expect on the new record. In addition to the album announcement the group confirms a North American tour run this summer, dates below:


Can’t Cool Me Down is a momentary glimpse into an ambient but dark alternative world living inside of Will Toledo’s head. Lifted by lush lofi tempos, programmed drums and etheral mid tempo rock, the new single is similar to the indie synth pop sound of the Gorillaz meets the ambient rock aesthetic of Brand New or Silversun Pickups.


In a press release explaining the meaning behind the album lead singer Will said “This album was made from January 2015 to December 2019, starting as a collection of vague ideas that eventually turned into songs. I wanted to make something that was different from my previous records, and I struggled to figure out how to do that. 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.”
