THE SOAPGIRLS – SINGLE REVIEW

The SoapGirls – Bad Bitch 



Release Date: Out Now

South African duo The SoapGirls are now based in the UK and touring this small island with nothing but a couple of guitars and some songs. And I when I say nothing I mean nothing almost literally as these ladies seem to find wearing clothes inhibits their musical performance but not in a Eurotrash kinda way, I can assure you. New single ‘Bad Bitch’ was apparently written after an episode of sexually motivated abuse and that emotionally charged experience gave them the motivation they needed to write this tune. Musically, this is punk-rock with LA spirit like Buckcherry in high-heels but with the alt-pop sneer of Shampoo or Joan Jett which makes it all the more appealing. Sure, this isn’t the most original stuff out there at the moment but it’s hard to resist some good, honest, dirty rock’n’roll with some quality vocal harmonies and a heavy dose of genuine anger slathered over the top. I’m going to stick my neck out and suggest this pair tear it up on the live stage as well so get out there and catch them at a show if you can.
