Car Seat Headrest has released ‘Hollywood’, the latest single taken from his hotly anticipated album Making A Door Less Open, released May 1st.
Accompanied by an animated video by Sabrina Nichols featuring Toledo’s alternate persona ‘Trait’, ‘Hollywood’ is an a simultaneously exhilarating and terrifying haunted ride through Tinseltown that sees Car Seat Headrest embarking on adventurous new roads.
Speaking to SiriusXM, Toledo said: “This song is about Hollywood as a place where people go to make their fantasies come to life, and they end up exploiting other people and doing terrible things to maintain their fantasy. There’s this terror you’re going to lose the fantasy, and you’re going to have to face the facts, and some people will do anything to avoid facing that. It’s about that fear, and the pain of being subjugated to someone else’s fantasy against your will, and it’s all tied together under this banner of this physical location of Hollywood that we all know about and dream about, but none of us really want to think about what is going on behind the scenes there.”
