“The SoapGirls are pop. They’re dance. They are two super-sassy girls with linked minds and souls. They’re the epicentre of a new sound reverberating across the globe.” – from their website
Camille and Noemie are sisters, born in Paris, but living in Hout Bay, South Africa from a young age. Their stage name comes from selling soap handmade by their mother, to raise money for charity. The girls have dressed alike forever, and are born performers. When they were 12-13 years old they were singing and dancing in the street (surrounded, as always, by a crowd of onlookers), and were asked to record in a studio.
They told Hypable: “We developed our sound a few albums later, and we finally released one under a major label, and from there our official music journey began!!”
“Rolling Stones” is the latest song from the pair – it’s bassy and sassy, and a toe-tapper. You can imagine slow-dancing to it in a club, or listening to it on the radio while sitting on your verandah on a hot summer evening, drinking a long cool glass of something. On first listen, it’s a feel-good song, but it’s more than that. Check out the lyrics:
“I dont need a fast train, a jet plane to get where I wanna go
I dont need nobody, somebody to tell me told you so
I got nothing , got everything my cup’s filled to the brim
Even when I’m falling, crawling, I know where I have been
All I need is someone like me”
“Rolling Stones” is essentially a personal statement from the sisters – they’re strong women with drive and determination, and will get where they want to go. They have world-domination in their sights, and having conquered South Africa, they’re now taking on the US. They’re on their way!
