Fast-forward a year—and Janani launched their next hit single, “Run (Pick Up The Gun)”. Shortly after the release, the single was awarded the AKADEMIA AWARD for “Best Alternative Rock Song”. wrote, “Run (Pick Up The Gun)'s killer chorus latches itself in your memory after the first listen. It's a well-crafted song that acts as a wonderful homage to the classic rock sound, but also just a good piece of songwriting in itself.” Janani’s music has commanded the airwaves of such notable radio stations as CKCU 93.1 FM in Ottawa, Canada, KISS 104.7 FM, and Orlando's own XL 106.7 FM. Their music has also been featured in DIRECTTV's documentary “Gone Until December”.
