Past Life Romeo has today released their new single titled ‘Drew A Heart <3’ from the upcoming EP ‘You Look Just Like Me’, dropping May 17th.

A brash introduction to a new sound an image, which is that of Camila Djadja, formerly of the rock group Sugar Pills. Where her career left off begins anew with this brilliant evolution of a cacophony of sounds and hooks with a new song that is as musically enlightening as it is enthralling.

Having known about her cinematic career with video and scoring, Camila shows a keen sense of musical self and assurance like an artist way beyond her years, but not beyond her reach. Brilliant.

About Past Life Romeo

Past Life Romeo is the solo project of Camila Djadja, singer-songwriter, formerly of the rock group Sugar Pills. Camila is also known for her work with film and cinema, having produced several music videos as well as original soundtracks.

Past Life Romeo is a brand-new alternative pop project, mixing electro, hyperpop and rock. There’s melancholy and a sensuality in the writing and voice of Camila, mixed with the eclectic productions of musician Carlos Loverboy (Spill Tab, Blossoms, Myd…) who co-prouced Past Life Romeo’s first EP, and the garage drums of Jim Casanova (Annie Ada…).

This first Past Life Romeo EP, scheduled for release on 17th May, titled “You Look Just Like Me”, was recorded at Motorbass and offers a mix of analog and digital; a disk that is both organic and intimate. Throughout the EP, we find the influence of Bon Iver and Burial, but also Sega Bodega or even the pop of Lorde.

The EP was mixed by James Rand (Eartheater, Sega Bodega, LSDXOXO…) and evokes introspection and intimate questions on change, self-image, gender and sexuality.

The first single to come from the EP “Sometimes, Most Nights” was released on PIAS on February 14, 2024 to acclaim from Wonderland, Radio France Inter, Tsugi, iHeart and gained features on Apple’s New Music Daily playlist, Inrocks selection of the week, month and year, Têtu selection of the month and more.

Next Past Life Romeo will release “Drew a heart <3” from the EP on 3rd April 2024. The track combines various inspirations, resulting in a pop-electronic sound infused with elements of drum and bass, as well as a shoegaze vibe reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine. This track conveys the feeling of attachment, expressed through the imagery of intimacy, desire and shared experiences.
