Ana Lee here with my DJ pick today! This is a band I discovered when they opened Nashville Sunday Night for Elliott Root, and blew me away with their cover of Prince’s “When Doves Cry.” They’re called The Social Animals and they’ll be releasing a new record soon. This track really knocked me out when I heard it live. It’s called “Let Me Go” and we’d love to know what you think! Hit or miss? Let us know! #L100DJPicks
