Open Mike Eagle & Paul White – “Check To Check” (Video)

blame it on Patrick Glynn April 5, 2016

Open Mike Eagle and Paul White are fresh off the release of their Hella Personal Film Festival LP, and the revisit the project with a new visual for one of the first singles, “Check To Check.”

The song is all about society’s habit to live through their phone rather than living in the moment, and the Chicago native visualizes that through showcasing all the things he’s missing while looking at Twitter, fantasy football scores and Snapchat.

There’s Mario and Road Runner (??) playing on a seesaw. His friends, whom he mistakes for Questlove, roaming the park and a slew of people dressed in costumes parading behind him. But it all goes unnoticed in the name of checking Dart Adams’ Twitter feed. (Can’t say I blame him there, though.)

Watch the video above, and cop Hella Personal Film Festival on Bandcamp.
