The SoapGirls, French-born sisters from Cape Town, are often described as the world's hardest-working duo. They write outsider anthems with grunge-infused guitars overlaid with harmonic vocals, huge melodious overtones and metal growls that are androgynous, audacious and straight from the heart. Their music is a brand of storytelling with a strong message behind each track. With their DIY attitude and unbridled work ethic, they have been named as a band to watch out for by music critics around the globe. Armed with unforgettable melodies and catchy choruses, The SoapGirl's energy, rawness and authenticity live, has earned them a deserved formidable reputation.

As teenagers, they stormed #1 on the album charts in South Africa with dance-pop and their Debut album. In the same year, they placed all four single releases from the album in the top ten of the single charts. Despite their youth, they quickly realized that success comes at a price. The mechanisms and soulless marketing machinery of their major label Universal were against them. From then on, The SoapGirls decided not to compromise on their songs and their live performance. They left the safe haven of chart success, ended their collaboration with Universal, and followed their hearts.

Guitarist/vocalist Mie sets the pace beautifully, as she powers through each song with a certain style and grace and guitar riffs that captivate every audience. Her vocals have been likened to an early Blondie. Drawing musical influences from Fleetwood Mac, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Heart, Nirvana and many more as her preferred style of music being more melodic.

Bass player/Vocalist Millie is an onstage force to be reckoned with, encompassing a unique bass technique with contortion that you would rarely see in a live rock performance whilst never missing a note coupled with an insane vocal range often likened to Brodie Dalle, Tina Turner and Randy Blythe from her angelic notes to metal growls that will leave you disturbed Mille is undoubtedly a force on her own terms. Being a fan of heavier music from acts like Alice in Chains, Marilyn Manson, The Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, Alanis Morrissette, Hole, Nirvana, Napalm Death and L7 her influences are evident in her furiously energetic performance as she connects with and shocks the crowd.

Their ‘Don’t Give A Damn Tour’ in 2022 saw the band conquering new territories in USA and Japan where they had sold out shows. There is much excitement for their next worldwide tour titled Love Potion which starts in the UK in May 2023. Rock fans of all stripes can look forward to an extraordinary evening with one of the most energetic and wildest live bands with unmatched energy. Features on the band have appeared in Classic Rock, The Mirror, Vive Le Rock and Power Play magazine, while their last two singles were played on BBC Radio and playlisted by Planet Rock Radio.

The SoapGirls remind us that music can still be straight to the point, efficient, honest, and exciting.
