Austrian-Brazilian London-based singer-songwriter Vanilla Jenner, or Viji as she’s ‘artistically known’, has signed to Dirty Hit to drop a debut single.
Titled ‘Cherry’, it’s taken from a debut EP due later this year, and comes alongside an animated video.
On the video Viji explains, “Cherry is the first song I wrote for this project. It was when I started writing on guitar again. I got the hook in the chorus and the song unfolded around it. The lyrics are about a crush, when you like someone else more than they like you but don’t see it. It took a while to crunch the words because when I first played it to people they didn’t get what I was trying to say lol. The video characters are based off the Wonderkins from the y2k style dollz pages. I don’t remember where I got the idea for the video, but I wanted to create a sims-esque world the song could live in. Someone of Fiverr did the animations and I put it together on my computer. The posters in the video are some of my fav albums.”
