Ma Never Told Me ‘Bout Girls Like This…
Armed with a venomous swagger and catchy, riff-oriented guitar grind The SoapGirls unveil their debut UK video for Bad Bitch, a caustic slice of vitriolic rock’n’roll.
Alluring , hypnotic and nonchalant The SoapGirls hail from South Africa and were given their name by the general public since 2004 “We have been The SoapGirls since we were 8 and 9 selling hand made soap and street performing for various causes, we did this 365 days of the year for 9 years”
This is a record from a band that has found their sound and is ready for the world to hear it, feast you eyes now on this slice of pure attitude :
Bad Bitch was written 2 days after The SoapGirls were attacked in Hastings, resulting in a “very emotional and very raw” song. This unprovoked attack, involved sexist abuse and took place when The SoapGirls were performing live, with the perpetrators throwing copious amounts of red liquid over the band. “We hated not being able to fight back and still suffer a lot of anxiety when we are performing as a result of what happened, I became slightly jaded and Bad Bitch was born after we decided we would never take shit from anyone ever again!!”
Bad Bitch sees the girls developing a recognized ‘sound’ with their ever-so-edgy vocals, Mille’s heavy throbbing bass lines and Mie letting rip with searing lead guitar work, creating an insouciant blast of filthy rock’n’roll.
Proud and humble The SoapGirls are a force of nature who inspire anyone to “follow their dream and believe in themselves”. Described by some in the music industry as being “the new kids on the block and The Soap Girls are here to set the standard for the new generation.”
The SoapGirls stand for freedom and non-judgement, fiercely outspoken for animal rights, society’s most vulnerable and anti government policies they write straight from the heart with every song being a real experience, either with themselves or someone close.
“Be brave enough to be yourself always, we have only one life that we know of so Rock it and embrace it without losing yourself” – The SoapGirls
To see these girls perform live is a must.
