Event Details

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 Festival and Camden Rocks festival in 2019 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 their 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 in 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 a number of hard hitting singles including Bad Bitch and Johnny Rotten, with their second album Societys Rejects once again taking them to the next level of their musical careers. 2019 saw the release of single One Way Street, building up the hype and anticipation for their long awaited 3rd Album titled Elephant In The Room released April 2019.

The pandemic hit, and while the world stood still in 2020, the fearless sisters persevered at the polar opposite, embracing 2020 and news of cancelled tours to deliver over 200 live-steamed shows and counting, taking fans on a raucous virtual worldwide tour, from country to country, theme to theme, and with not one set, costume or theme the same [view on YouTube]. Now in 2021 and with their virtual tour still in full-swing, The SoapGirls took to the idyllic beaches of Cape Town and a once-thriving beach-side entertainment venue to film ‘Heart In Bloom’, blending encapsulating choreography and cinematic visuals, to accompany hook-filled melodies, over driving musicianship. The start of what’s to come as the debut track from their long-awaited fourth album ‘In My Skin’, as they line up tours behind the scenes for once the live world rebounds.

 

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 hypnotizes 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

KROOKED TONGUE

Formed in 2019, Bristol-based Krooked Tongue are an alternative-rock three-piece known for their frenetic live shows and brooding lyrical commentary. The band released their debut single ‘I wanna Steal Your Car’ in 2019 to critical acclaim which saw interest in the band quickly grow.  2020 saw the cancellation of their second UK tour and the postponement of shows alongside the likes of Dinosaur Pile-Up and Turbowolf, as well as festival slots at Boardmasters and 2000 Trees. They’ve instead spent the last year honing in on a more refined studio sound with Josh Gallop of Phoxjaw at Stage 2 Studios in Bath, working to help replicate their formidable live act. The trio released their long-awaited debut EP ‘No Vacancy Hotel’ on February 11th 2022.
