Sl0tface – ‘Sink or Swim’

Sl0tface Sink or Swim stream environmental issues

Sløtface’s new single ‘Sink or Swim’ finds the band in pensive yet powerful mood as they look into the devastating affects of climate change and our attitude towards the environment. The accompanying video highlights the work of The Great Pacific Garbage Patch’s Rich Horner and Caroline Power, who have been documenting the littering of the ocean for many years.

The song was written while on tour during one of those warm weather bursts we’re experiencing all too often (‘it’s too warm for October’). Haley Shea says: ‘It’s supposed to be an honest description of how I’m definitely not doing enough to stop it, and how it feels so massive and difficult, but at the same time it in part comes down to lots of small and every-day choices’ and finishes with Haley repeating the mantra ‘It’s not politics, it’s sink or swim’ over guitar work that recalls Bombay Bicycle Club or The Maccabees in their pomp.
