VON SELL Returns With Animated Visual For “Hell No”

Today, self-taught producer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist newcomer Von Sell releases a lighthearted, animated visual to Hell No.” Created in collaboration with GRAMMY-winning producerJuan Cristobal Losada, and released in partnership with NYU’s Steinhardt students and Village Records, the sparkling ballad was Von Sell‘s first release since his acclaimed debut EP. The visual itself draws from a 1920s cartoon short by animator J. Van Beuren – a controversial figure in his time, whose obscure vintage shorts Von Sell discovered online and felt fit perfectly with the concept of “Hell No.”


“My first song since my year long hiatus,” Von Sell reflected on the track. “It was a great feeling to get back into it again after not having been able to sing for so long, and it was a fun song to work on cause it’s somehow more linear, simpler and less texture-driven than a lot of my other tracks; I think I wanted to communicate a little more directly with the listener, almost physically rather than just emotionally and metaphorically – I hope I pulled it off.”

Based in Brooklyn by way of Hamburg, Germany, Von Sell emerged in 2016 with his debut self-titled EP that captivated listeners with its beautifully orchestrated electronic arrangements and his inimitable vocals. Garnering critical praise, thousands of streams on Spotify, and with multiple tracks reaching #1 on Hype Machine.

Von Sell has spent the past year working on new music, which set to be released soon. Stay tuned to his social pages below for forthcoming announcements.
