Hout Bay in Cape Town is famous for many things…the start of Chapman’s Peak, the World Of Birds and Snoekies amoungst others, but did you know it’s also the home of the Soap Girls who describe themselves as “two French African blonde bombshells who prove that sisters can do it for themselves, as they stamp their fresh and unique identity on a world that’s tired of video clichés and pre-fabricated pop“.
Well the Soap Girls have released their latest music video called Hurricane and you may wanna watch it.
Glad to see they avoided the “video clichés and pre-fabricated pop” . Also Lady Gaga may wanna have some words there about there chorus being a tad too similar to her Poker Face song.
And if you didn’t know who the Soap Girls were then let the about section of their magical website school you.
“Flashback to their hometown of Hout Bay, the so-called “independent republic” nestling far south of South Africa’s Cape Town peninsula. The girls are dressed in identical outfits – they always do this, and have done so since they were kids. They’re at the harbour, with their unique matching outfits, and carrying baskets filled with soap they’ve handmade to sell. They do this to donate the profits to the homeless and needy, to abandoned animal shelters and other charities. Still in flashback, Camille and Noemie sing and dance, and a crowd gathers around. They meet travellers from around the world who are captivated by these two fabulous creatures. “
Oh while we’re at it it’s worthwhile noting their take on bathtime and boys.
“Boys?” they say, in a single voice, and then tease one another about the crushes guys have had on them, and the few they’ve had – and then talking about how they escape from it all, and from the pressure of being young stars, by spending time with one another and, especially, by taking long bubble baths together where no-one interrupts, and they sing and make up new songs. “The music comes first, but of course we love boys. We even love grandpas. We’d have to find twins, though, or brothers who don’t mind spending all their time together, they way we do.”
Okaaaaay….form a queue grandpas.
