Ohhpatches is Doing Everything He Can to, “Hide This Pain

The Alchemist

Patrick O’Kane, also known as ohhpatches, was raised in Washington D.C. by his Father who had an encyclopedic record collection and roots in the Go-Go scene in his time. Ohhpatches recently finished up his latest project called, “P.S. I’m OK”. When asked about the album he had the following to say:


There are no rules. Only ideas grinded with a spirit of reckless exploration. ohhpatches brings the feeling of fear absolved into heavy drums and remorseless lyrics, depicting a human being behind the sounds. His debut single, “Hide This Pain” sees him venture into the unknown with his first real vocal offering, and a coming album entitled P.S. I’m OK harnesses the discomfort and deep thought that comes with being locked inside for over a year.


The first release off the upcoming project is titled, “Hide This Pain”, and it starts with a simple bass line before exploding into an incredibly catchy hook. The instrumental portion is a combination of guitar lead line that features some catchy riffs with a steady drumbeat that comes in and out throughout the song. Our favorite part of the song is definitely the hook, but choose your own favorite part, and check out the song below.

Marc discusses his songwriting and recording process and his extensive collaboration efforts. He discusses how 9:30 Club holds a special place in his heart through personal experiences with DJ Tommy B, and how his 2020 album, Fresh Air, transformed from being supported through live events to a more digital experience for fans.
