Uh Oh, Mark Patrick release new videos
Time to catch up with a pair of music videos, one by Omaha rapper Mark Patrick and one by indie rock band Uh Oh.
First, Patrick dives into the Omaha rap scene and his work with the New Generation Music Festival in “Too Much.” The lead single from his forthcoming mixtape Multifarious, it gives a glimpse into his perspective on in-scene involvement, accompanied by on-sight visuals. Multifarious drops this April; watch “Too Much” below:
Uh Oh’s “Songs In The Kitchen” pretty succinctly captures the band’s laid-back party ethos, juxtaposed neatly with Joe Champion’s thoughts on what escape the house show provides. Filmed at Lucy’s Pub in Omaha, it’s an apt companion for an energetic track. Watch the video below:
