New Sweet Talk, Sweet Talk Music Video w/ Oxfam America

Posted on

We’re proud to announce the new music video for “Sweet Talk, Sweet Talk”, in a partnership with Oxfam to help maintain awareness for the ever-developing struggle in the Gulf Coast region following April’s devastating oil spill and ensuing ecological crisis.

The video tells the story of the aftermath of the Gulf Coast oil spill in Louisiana and Oxfam’s advocacy efforts on behalf of communities that rely on the coast for their livelihoods. We encourage you to watch the video and share it as widely as you can.

Together with Oxfam, we want to remind you that the Gulf Coast oil spill remains the devastatingly persistent plight of a region, and truly an entire nation. For more information and continued support of Oxfam’s efforts in the Gulf, click here:
