Who Are The SoapGirls?
The SoapGirls are fearless sisters, French-born, and ready to conquer the globe with their raw energy and authenticity. They have been performing non-stop since 2015 around the world and have a gathering of their own groupies, known as ‘The SoapSuds.’ The two sisters, Mie and Millie have come together to create a unique style of music, with a bit of grunge, punk, rock, and melancholy soul masterfully mixed to the delight of their fans.
Mie, the guitarist, and Millie on bass, take turns on the vocals, creating unforgettable melodies and choruses that wrap you up in the lyrics. They get their inspiration from a variety of acts, including Alice in Chains, Korn, Alanis Morrissette, Fleetwood Mac, Heart, and R.E.M., just to name a few.
The SoapGirls started singing as street artists in Cape Town, South Africa. They were given their unique name by the people there, as they sold handmade soap in the streets at the tender young ages of 8 and 9. At 12 and 13, they started their recording careers and signed with Universal Records. Their debut album, which topped the local charts, was released in 2011.
Since then the girls have released a number of albums, including Elephant in the Room, Societys Rejects, Heart in Bloom, and the latest, In My Skin. They have appeared in The Mirror, Classic Rock Magazine, and Vive Le Rock, and have been played on several radio stations.
The SoapGirls have been on a number of tours from 2015 through the end of 2022. Their raw, honest, and anarchistic music is loved by crowds across the world. Their latest tour, Don’t Give a Damn, included venues in the US, UK, Europe, and Japan, and was well-received by music lovers and critics alike.
All About the 2022 Tour
In 2022, TheSoapGirls kicked off their Don’t Give A Damn World Tour in the United Kingdom. They performed shows in nine different countries throughout the tour and included some virtual dates for those who couldn’t make it to a live show. The tour sold out dates in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, Belgium, and Italy, as The SoapGirls shared their music with an audience that is begging for a new variety of music and expression.
The shows were edgy and a little surreal, leaving you with a feeling that you’ve been missing out after you see one. The performances are explosive, with raw, vibrant energy, as the sisters express freedom and liberation from society. Basically, anything goes at one of their live shows, and the theme of “expect the unexpected” rings true at each performance.
After a two-year hiatus from the stage, forced by lockdowns across the world, The SoapGirls delivered even more than what the audience expected in their return. They eagerly reconnected with fans from pre- Covid days and formed connections with new fans or virtual fans that hadn’t yet been able to see their live shows.
Many praise their controversial style, and their shows, which often contain rock and roll language and nudity. A few object, but most agree that even though their style is vexing and fearless, the girls are true artists at heart. Devolution Magazine said it best:
“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.
If you’re an adult, looking for a good time, there is no better rock band to see. Their openness and honesty are refreshing to see in a young band, and the idea that they are truly authentic to who they are is a fresh break from the “playing politics” of other performers.
The SoapGirls music is catchy, hard-hitting, and fill with raw passion. Their music has been hyped up by their fans and anticipated by many. And for good reason.
Their newest single, “Breathe” is no different. It’s filled with grunge guitar, loud chords, and raw vocals from both sisters. It’s a story of going beyond just coping with everyday life, and moving into a phase of truly finding yourself. It’s about letting go, embracing who you are meant to be, and just staring into the sun.
The drum beat and guitar rifts keep the song moving forward and give hope that the person listening can find their inner peace. It’s uncompromised, individualistic, and brilliant. There’s a reason The SoapGirls have amassed a following of over 55,000 followers on their Facebook Page and over 40,000 on their YouTube Channel. Some of the sisters’ music videos have been seen over 49,000 times.
If you haven’t yet checked out the band, and are looking for a new alternative rock meets grunge hybrid, The SoapGirls may be your next go-to band. Check them out!
