This June we welcome back The SoapGirls
Modern-day phenomenons, The Soap Girls, are returning to the UK this year for their ‘Stinks Like Punk’ tour
The SoapGirls write outsider anthems that are androgynous, audacious and straight from the heart, with each song born from a real experience, either with themselves or someone close, ensuring every song is very honest.
Mie on guitar and vocals sets the pace beautifully as she powers through each song with a certain style and grace that captivates every audience.
Armed with unforgettable melodies and catchy choruses, The SoapGirls energy, rawness and authenticity live, has earned these road warriors a formidable reputation.
Performing continuously throughout 2016, these fearless French born sisters Ca(Millie) and Noe(MIE) Debray, backed by their strong songwriting abilities, dedication and determination to their craft, have slayed critics and earned a dedicated group of followers known as the ‘The SoapSuds’, who follow the band across the UK and Europe.
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.
Millie on bass and vocals is influenced by Alice in Chains, Marilyn Manson, The Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, Alanis Morrissette, Hole, Aretha Franklin, Nirvana, Napalm Death and L7 and tends to prefer heavy angry music. This is evident in her performance as she connects and hypnotises the crowd.
Their common ground is grunge, with Nirvana, Alice in Chains and L7 being their biggest influences and with both girls sharing the singing role, this dynamic duo breathe new life into the genre, for others to follow.
The release of Bad Bitch and their intensive touring schedule saw the band featured in both the Music and National press including the Daily Mirror, while the Bad Bitch was played on BBC Radio and play listed by Planet Rock Radio.
The intensive Bad Bitch with its lyrics of empowerment is the first taste of things to come and The SoapGirls ability to hold back on the clamour and let their often sardonic lyrics and hooky choruses shine bodes well as they enter the studio to record their official European debut album, set to be released in 2017.
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, The SoapGirls 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 .The SoapGirls play rock 'n' roll the way its meant to be: Loud. Raw. Dirty. Fast and furious. and the hard graft is paying off having already captured the attention of some movers and shakers in the industry.
The SoapGirls next release will be their succulent new single Rather B Dead, a primal and emotional break up song. Rather B Dead’s sardonic lyrics and hooky chorus shines, with their ever-so-edgy vocals, fuzzed guitar and throbbing bass creating an insouciant blast of grunge-rock.
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 with details of a new album, festival appearances all to follow release of Rather B Dead, 2017 is set to be pivotal year for the band.
“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.
