Car Seat Headrest's most acclaimed body of work is an album about loneliness, yet about the desire of love. It’s about knowing of one’s right of being happy, yet the inevitability of feeling empty.

Revealing a shift from her last projects, Cabral seems to fully embrace the baroque pop genre in The Turning Wheel. This is a record filled with orchestral instruments generating intersecting melodies, featuring emotion-evoking, and striking breathy vocals on top of triumphant melodies.

Comparisons made between the California-born artist and the well-known British art-pop icon, Kate Bush, have not been held back since the release of Cabral’s third LP, and rightly so, as her breathy and ... read more
