Viji Releases New Song “Karaoke”
London-based Austrian-Brazilian singer-songwriter Vanilla Jenna, aka Viji released a brand new single called “Karaoke” on September 19, 2023.
The song is taken from her upcoming debut album “So Vanilla”, which is due out October 27, 2023 via Speedy Wunderground.
The track was written by Vanilla Jenna and Dan Carey.
“Karaoke is a song that came out of a silly 10 min jam at the end of a writing session,” Viji said of the song. “I remember picking up the bass and just riffing with some filthy low-end sounds. Dan (Carey) felt the magic and we recorded 3 or 4 minutes of us going for it, followed by some guide vocals inspired by shouty Japanese punk songs I like. What the lyrics actually turned into is such a time stamp of what I was going through at that very moment.”
The song is accompanied by the Claryn Chong-directed music video.
Viji continued, “The video is a collaboration with director Claryn Chong, who made my sexy nightmares come to life. As an homage to where the album So Vanilla was recorded, we filmed the video on Streatham high street in London. Speedy Wunderground central!”
- Viji shared on social media, “Last big single before the album drops!! Also the last songs me and Dan Carey wrote in the studio right before starting recording. Thanks Yuri Shibuichi for the dopey drums and Suzy Clue for the redrum screams. tysm Claryn Chong for making this vision come to life on 16mm film. All my homies who pulled up and stayed till 6am are 4eva goated!! Big love to streatham where the album was recorded David Bason and Speedy Wunderground PIAS dream team.”
