Car Seat Headrest is one of indie rock’s greatest new hopes. Having won over a cult-following with his more than ten Bandcamp-released albums, he reached new heights with last year’s Matador-released Teens Of Denial. Helmed by Will Toledo, the group specialise in melancholic, theatrical indie rock. Their choruses build to cacophonous levels only to give away to moments of reprieve and soaring melodies. At the Kentish Town Forum on Tuesday night, Toledo and co. proved their status as one of the most exciting acts around, nearly blowing the roof off with raucous, amped up versions of classics like ‘Drunk Drivers/ Killer Whales’ and ‘Destroyed By Hippie Powers’ and even a cover of Patti Smith’s ‘Gloria.’ Anthony Yates was there to capture in all in its extremely sweaty glory, take a look at the live gallery below.
