London producer Samaritan's video for "Don't Try Love" isn't hugely involved. The slow motion model's borderline boring, which is a fine enough vehicle for the track, really, whose bass line and sparse devil/angel vocal clips stand tall on their own. That is, until the brilliant moment at 3:50 when the close-up eye droops perfectly in sync with the powering-down synth. Samaritan's thank-god-we-came-across-this Don't Try Love EP is out now on Bandcamp.
