London-based alternative artist Viji (aka Vanilla Jenner) has shared her new single “Anything“, out now via Speedy Wunderground.
Following the release of the grunge anthem “Down” which hailed the start of a new era, “Anything” is a spangly and playful ode to longing with Viji singing, “I hope you’re watching, am I mysterious? To you I’m hoping that you leave wanting more”.
Speaking about the track, Viji says:
“This song is another collaboration with producer Dan Carey. “Anything” is about being someone’s fantasy. Playfully indulging in the gaze put on you. For me this represents my first love interest after a breakup, where I can indulge in how I want to be seen. The tension is being held with an uninterrupted strum of two guitars swaying through different melodies in 6/8.”
In addition, the track comes with a lyric video which sees a group of friends enjoying an unusual dinner party, referencing ‘Nyotaimori’, the Japanese art of eating off a naked body.

“Anything” is out today , and is a continuation of the new partnership between Dan Carey’s label and Viji. Dan, a legendary producer who has worked with Fontaines DC, Wet Leg, slowthai and more, has worked in a close producing and writing partnership with Vanilla on a collection of brand new songs, more due later this year. Viji played some of the new material for the first time live at a sold out headline show at Third Man Records in March, and again this month at the Windmill supporting Miss Tiny, as well as a set at the Beach Stage at The Great Escape.
