Mystery And Animation Connect On Raz Simone’s “Bow Down” Video

Raz Simone isn’t the conventional rapper, but even the video for “Bow Down” is a little left-field for his catalogue. The new clip, directed by Joe Garber and animated by Carina Simmons, is a unique one featuring some magic in the forest.

The black-and-white animation does fit the song’s dark, brooding mood though. A hooded figure makes his way to the forest, but it isn’t like the ones depicted in the Disney movies (one YouTube commenter compared it to Hayao Miyazaki works). There’s a lot of interpretable imagery here; it’s all at least symbolically relevant to the song.

“Bow Down” is a cut off Cognitive Dissonance, which dropped in March.
