Car Seat Headrest have released ‘Cute Thing’, the latest track to be previewed from forthcoming new album Twin Fantasy – a re-recorded, re-imagined new version of the 2011 self-released Bandcamp masterpiece of the same name – which will be out February 16th on Matador Records.

Following the release of singles ‘Beach Life In Death’ and ‘Nervous Young Inhumans’ (and its accompanying video that marked Toledo’s directorial debut), ‘Cute Thing’ is an ecstatic multi-part epic of unbridled yearning, flirtation, and abandon – pairing masterfully layered production with a combustible house-party reverie. Close listening will reveal an interpolation of They Might Be Giants’ ‘Ana Ng’, nods to James Brown and Frank Ocean (replacing the Bandcamp original’s nods to Dan Bejar and John Entwistle, respectively), and the unforgettable line “he died in an explosion / of mixed media / and poorly written reviews / and some stammering drunk who tried to tell him how good his shit was.”

With a seven-piece band in tow (including members of Naked Giants), Car Seat Headrest will bring its explosive and revelatory live show to New Zealand in early 2018 for Auckland City Limits on March 3rd, 2018 at Western Springs. Toledo and his band of troubadours first stepped foot in New Zealand for last year's Laneway Festival in Auckland, proving to the southern hemisphere they are not ones to be missed!
