Die beiden in Frankreich geborenen und Südafrika aufgewachsenen Schwestern, Millie und Mie, sind der musikalischen Welt heute als The SoapGirls bekannt. Auch diejenigen unter Euch, die alles schon einmal irgendwie und irgendwo gesehen haben, dürfen sich nun auf etwas wirklich Besonderes freuen, nämlich auf Südafrikas schönste und musikalischste Rebellinnen während ihrer "Sniff My Strap"– Tour 2019 in Europa.
Bereits in jungen Jahren fanden die Geschwister aus Kapstadt zur Musik und standen mit zwölf bzw. dreizehn Jahren das erste Mal in einem Aufnahmestudio. Nur kurze Zeit später folgte ein Vertrag mit einem Major-Label in Südafrika. 2011 veröffentlichten Millie und Mie ihr erstes Album mit dem Titel „Xperience“. The SoapGirls spielen eine außergewöhnliche Mischung aus Rock, Pop, Alternative, Grunge und Punk, die zu jeder Zeit Spaß macht.
Seit ihren ersten Konzerten in Europa 2015 sind dann noch 3 weitere Alben erschienen: "Calls For Rebellion" (2015), "Societys Rejects" (2017), "Elephant In The Room" (2019)!
Armed with unforgettable melodies and catchy choruses, The SoapGirls energy, rawness and authenticity live, has earned a formidable reputation.
Performing internationally and continuously since 2015, these fearless French born sisters Millie and Mie, have slayed critics and earned a global dedicated group of followers known as the ‘The SoapSuds’, some of who follow the band across the UK and Europe.
The SoapGirls are society’s rejects and their punk credentials were rubber stamped by scintillating performances at many festivals including the legendary Rebellion Festivall and Camden Rocks festival last year and such was the their success that they have inevitably been asked to perform again 2019 whilst on their current tour Sniff My Strap promoting their much anticipated latest album Elephant in the Room.
The SoapGirls write outsider anthems that are androgynous, audacious and straight from the heart. Following the release of their album Societys Rejects, the band have appeared in Classic Rock Magazine, The Mirror and Vive Le Rock, while ttheir last two singles were played on BBC Radio and play listed by Planet Rock Radio as well as various other stations.
Fighting prejudice and haters with a sword of honesty and a shield of integrity The SoapGirls have endured much but have always risen above those that have sought to derail them. The girls shine during their exhilarating, firework-strewn live performances putting inclusivity and freedom of expression at the core of each show. They are keen to show that music should be for everyone and everyone should be free to be themselves.
Alluring, hypnotic and nonchalant The SoapGirls started their career in Cape Town performing as street artists for eight years and were given their name by the general public. “We have been The SoapGirls since we were 8 and 9 selling handmade soap and street performing for various causes, we did this 365 days of the year, for 9 years”. At twelve and thirteen they began their recording career and signed to Universal Records releasing their debut album in 2011 which topped the domestic charts.
After conquering South Africa, The SoapGirls with their thirst for knowledge and justice, wanted to broaden their musical horizons, leading them first to stages in the United States and then the UK and Europe, with a determination to fight against struggle and heartache. The SoapGirls first toured the UK 2015, releasing their first independent well received album Calls For Rebellion, with one critic accurately calling the album “Raw, catchy, anarchistic Rock and Roll.”They then followed through with some hard hitting singles like Bad Bitch, Johnny Rotten with their second album Societys Rejects which has once again put them onto the next level of their musical careers, This Year 2019 has already seen the release of their single One Way Street with more single to follow in the upcoming months building up the hype and anticipation for a much awaited 3rd Album titled Elephant In The Room which will be released end April.
Guitarist Mie sets the pace beautifully as she powers through each song with a certain style and grace that captivates every audience. Her biggest musical influences are Fleetwood Mac, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Heart, Nirvana, The Butthole Surfers and R.E.M and prefers more chilled out melancholy music.
Bass player Millie is a fan of heavier music from acts like Alice in Chains, Marilyn Manson, The Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, Alanis Morrissette, Hole, Aretha Franklin, Nirvana, Napalm Death and L7. This is evident in her performance as she connects and hypnotises the crowd.
Both Millie and Mie swap vocal duties giving them scope to show their individual nature in a way that adds to The Soap Girls dynamic. Their common ground is grunge, but their ethic is punk. What’s in a genre anyway? It’s all music at the end of the day.
The SoapGirls remind us that music can still be straight to the point, efficient, honest and exciting, so brace yourself for The SoapGirls’s next chapter.
“If being controversial means being consummate professionals, playing great original songs to an appreciative audience and treating everyone with respect then The Soap Girls must be at the front of the pack.” – Devolution Magazine VVK
