HANNI EL KHATIB shares new visual piece for 'Savage Times'
EP 'Savage Times Vol. 5' out now via Innovative Leisure! Innovative Leisure-signed Los Angeles artist shares trippy new visuals for latest single!
With his latest EP 'Savage Times Vol. 5' out now via Innovative Leisure, Los Angeles-based artist Hanni El Khatib is sharing a new visual piece for his latest single 'Savage Times'.
El Khatib started Savage Times last December, after the Bataclan attacks forced the cancellation of a planned Paris Festival performance. With unexpected time on his hands—and unexpected ideas on his mind—he’d scheduled open-ended studio time at Crystal Antlers frontman-turned-producer Jonny Bell’s Jazzcats studio. Each day, he’d take the hour-long drive through L.A.’s industrial corridor to Long Beach, sketching out riffs and lyrics as he drove.
Originally, he’d hoped to explode the lingering idea that he was simply a blues-rock guitar player, but that’s why the Savage Times EP Series touches everything from garage rock to punk to disco, hip-hop and even some unexpected solo-guitar self-portraiture. But on the way, healso exploded his own idea of what he could do—even maybe who he was, or would be. Savage Times was an experiment, but an experience, too that touches on some of the most personal, political & social songs to date.
