Aneiki is an Australian pop duo from Brisbane, Queensland made up of Jennifer Waite and Grant Wallis.[1] The duo was originally called Halogen, but were forced to change their name after a Perth-based Halogen (band) established sole rights to the name's usage in Australia. Aneiki worked with songwriter Daniel Jones[2] and were signed to his label, Meridienmusik.[3] Their debut single, "Pleased to Meet You", reached #26 on the ARIA singles chart, spending 18 weeks in the top 100[4] and was #13 on 2001's Australian Artist Singles chart.[5] "Pleased To Meet You" was the most played Australian song on Australian radio in 2002. Waite and Wallis were awarded APRA's Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year in 2002,[6] an award they shared with Sia Furler. Follow-up singles "Superhero", "15 Minutes", and "Even Without You" reached #48, #72, and #97.[7][8][9] Their debut album, Words in Place of Objects, reached #87 on the ARIA albums chart.[10]
