Hanni El Khatib wants you to come over and melt him like an ice cream cone on the street. The rising L.A. songwriter with a soft spot for Elvis and Dance Dance Revolution seems like a pretty down dude in this video of arcade shenanigans for "Melt Me," directed by Simon Cahn. The rising garage-rocker took the main stage at Sasquach yesterday alongside Kendrick Lamar, Future Islands and Schoolboy Q. Watch the video premiere below as well as a ridiculously charming acoustic performance of "Melt Me" featuring with the elementary school chorus at PS22 absolutely slaying the harmonies.
