Norwegian band Sløtface are back with a new single, this time sharing their moving number 'Sink Or Swim' — which is an honest and expressive track about the disastrous state of our world, climate change, and the many ways humans are ruining our home.

Along with sharing the track, the band have also unveiled an eye-opening lyric video which depicts the worsening pollution levels of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which has reached 1.6 million square meters. The footage was shot by Rich Horner and Caroline Power.

'Sink Or Swim' was written amidst a heatwave in London when the band was on tour. Haley Shea said on the track, "It’s about the desperation that comes when I think about climate change.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."
