LSTN // Gardens & Villa Cover The Animals, Currently Bringing Happiness to Cities Across America

Maybe it’s just us, but it seems everything Gardens & Villa touch turns to gold. They take a song, morph it into what on the surface seems cool and collected. Then you find yourself at the two minute mark, energized and body moving. Your confidence is overwhelming. You’re ready to take over the world. It’s just what they’ve done to The Animals’ “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place,” a song we all recognize from some distant youth. RCRD LBL shares the exclusive download >>> enjoy the cover.

The G&V dudes are currently on tour. The music is without a doubt something you’ve got to experience in person. If you’re in Chicago, head to Schubas tonight for their show with Moon King. They’ll head to Bloomington tomorrow and then join Polica for handful of shows >>> full list of dates and tickets.
