Seymour Bits' “Put It Back Down” feeds our animation fascination
If you’ve ever seen Don Hertzfeldt’s brilliant animated shorts “Rejected” or “Billy’s Balloon”, then you’ll understand our affection for this surreal and offbeat animation. Yes, Seymour Bits’—a.k.a. Bas Bron—new video for “Put It Back Down” isn’t connected to Hertzfeldt in any way, but it’s close enough style-wise to feed our fascination with the Academy Award-nominated artist.
And if you’ve had your head in a hole and don’t know what we’re talking about, then imagine if Nickelodeon and Heavy Metal had a baby. That doesn’t intrigue you? Then the electro bombasticity of the track will get your heart beating. This is exactly the sort of thing you’d expect to come out of Amsterdam.
