Watch Everything Is Recorded’s Trippy Video for ‘Close But Not Quite’ Featuring Sampha

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

Sampha has a really inventive video on his hands for the song “Close but Not Quite,” off XL Recording’s EP of the same name.

The clip shows the EP being recorded in the studio, and it looks like the footage is made out of several paper cut-outs, which gives everything a trippy, sort of disjointed look. Richard Russell, the founder of XL Recordings, dropped the five song project in May, and it features artists like Giggs, Obongjayar and Warren Ellis.

As far as Sampha, he’s been in extreme go mode since delivering his Process LP back in February. Not only has he played a constant string of shows to support the album, he’s been wowing crowds and critics alike by dropping new songs and giving one-off performances.

In March, the 28-year-old received rave reviews for his performance on NPR’S Tiny Desk Concert Series. He also dropped a film for his Process album and released a gorgeous rendition of Solange‘s “Cranes in the Sky.”

You can watch the new video for Sampha’s “Close But Not Quite” above and purchase the EP here.
