The music video, directed by Slim Set and Sonder, sees Slim Set’s joyboy2k guided through the city as a video game character. The clip’s theme is inspired by the ‘Heatsink’ game that was released alongside the single, in which avatars of the artists navigate their way from Parramatta station to Sydney’s CBD.
“Life feels like a game. We level up, complete objectives, take hits and die time and time again only to keep grinding day in and day out,” Slim Set said in a statement.
“‘Heatsink’ is about pushing pause, even if your task is incomplete. Pushing through with minimal hearts is usually less than ideal, instead, we opt for an energy boost, drink break, and moment to breathe as we reassess what’s best for moving forward.”

Prior to ‘Heatsink’, Slim Set’s last single was ‘Solar’, which was released in May last year.
