Video 2 Peep: Hanni El Khatib – You Rascal You

by Yvette Travillian

Hanni El Khatib is a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist from San Francisco. He’s got this sort of soul-rock-bluesy type of vibe going that faintly reminds me of The White Stripes or The Black Keys (both who I dig immensely). He released a single called “Dead Wrong” some months ago, and I totally missed it, but thanks to the B-side song “You Rascal You”, I now have Hanni El Khatib officially on my music radar. The song was featured on the HBO show Hung a couple of weeks ago and now there’s a video to accompany it. This is all I really know about him for now; oh and I also know that all his songs were written “for anyone who’s ever been shot or hit by a train” Hmmmmm…  that’s kind of awesome. Check him out below.
