Sofia Coppola's 'ultimate nepo baby' daughter Romy, 17, launches her music career with Taylor Swift's producer, a year after breaking the internet by trying to charter a helicopter with her dad's credit card

 

She was dubbed the ‘ultimate nepo baby’ after sending the internet into meltdown by trying to charter a helicopter with her dad’s credit card – but accusations of riding on her famous family’s coattails are not holding back Sophia Coppola’s daughter.

Romy Mars Croquet, 17, from New York’s West Village, released her EP yesterday, following in the footsteps of her musician father – Thomas Mars, 47, lead singer of indie band Phoenix.

The sixteen-year-old granddaughter of legendary director Francis Ford Coppola first made headlines last year after she revealed she was grounded for trying to charter a helicopter from New York to Maryland on her father’s credit card.

Her mother, who directed the cult-favourite film Lost in Translation, considered it comedic genius, but the public wasn’t so convinced and dubbed her the ‘ultimate nepo baby’.

Now, in true nepo baby fashion, she’s kickstarted her career in music with two singles produced by indie pop artist claud.mp3 and Mikey Hart who’s worked with Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey.

The EP features two singles – a titular single, Stuck UP, and From a Distance – both in the bedroom pop genre that’s gained momentum with young fans.

Bedroom pop covers a range of musical styles, from hip-hop to Lo-fi beats, because it’s about how the music is made with affordable equipment rather than what it sounds like.

For Romy, her sound is ethereal with whimsical guitar strums, and she sings about romantic relationships that are no more – despite her being ‘stuck up’ on the person.

Born in 2006, Romy grew up in New York’s trendy West Village and spent summers in France, where her father was practising in his band.

At the same time, she became well acquainted with the world of film, having accompanied her mother on set, along with her younger sister, Cosima.

But when it came to promoting those same films on the red carpet, it was a strict no-go zone for the sisters.

In 2017, during an interview with The Guardian, Sofia revealed why, saying: ‘I never saw the point of taking little kids to movie premieres and stuff. I just want them to have a childhood.’

Perhaps it was a privilege she wanted to grant her children after having a different experience herself.

Sofia began her career in film and television as a child, having starred in the background of eight of her father’s films – including as the infant Michael Francis Rizzi in The Godfather.

Despite wanting her children to lead typical lives, it didn’t take long for Romy to become a campaign star for none other than Marc Jacobs.
