Viji Unveils Video for New Song ‘Karaoke’

    Viji has shared a new single, ‘Karaoke’, alongside an accompanying visual. It’s taken from the London-based artist’s debut album So Vanilla, which was led by the song ‘Sedative’ and comes out October 27 via Speedy Wunderground. Check out the Claryn Chong-directed clip below.

    “’Karaoke’ is a song that came out of a silly 10 min jam at the end of a writing session,” Viji explained in a statement. “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 video is a collaboration with director Claryn Chong, whose made my sexy nightmares come to life,” Viji continued. “As an homage to where the album So Vanilla was recorded, we filmed the video on Streatham high street in London. Speedy Wunderground central!”
