Four years after Teens Of Denial, American band Car Seat Headrest, led by Will Toledo, announced the release of a new album. Making A Door Less Open is out on May 1st via Matador Records. We already shared “Can’t Cool Me Down” and “Martin”; “Hollywood” is a new excerpt. Check the official video below.
Toledo explains: “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.”
