Egg Drop Soup is a three piece, all female punk band based in Los Angeles, California. Although they aren’t originally from LA their music has the potential to take the Los Angeles music scene by storm with it’s burning intensity. Together their voices amplify resistance towards the patriarchy, giving that classic girl power spice to their rebellious sound. With influences like Black Sabbath, Frank Zappa, Nine Inch Nails, and Nirvana, this threesome takes what they’ve learned from some of the greats and does not disappoint as they have created their own unique and powerful style and sound.
Sam, the lead vocalist, explains that she came up with the name Egg Drop Soup and mentioned it to Olivia, the bands lead guitarist, as a side project in 2017, but it quickly became their main focus, and I mean with a name like that how could it not be? By 2019 they had met Bailey, Egg Drop Soup’s drummer, and they all started playing together about 3 months ago, creating the ultimate female punk trio. Egg Drop Soup, as you could probably guess, alludes to a woman’s eggs dropping once a month. This band name encapsulates the focal point of their music and the clever expression gives them an extra edge. As the trio continues to disrupt the system (in a cool way) they won’t cease to amaze you with their strong message and stage presence.
These women are open minded and vocal about what they believe in, which is something you can hear through their music. With new releases such as “Hard to Hold Onto” and “Tow Jam” to look forward to, they aren’t stopping anytime soon and not even a global pandemic can stand in their way of making an EP that will rock your world. When asked about the main message of their music they respond by saying the following, “EDS is a vehicle to speak our truth and channel our rage about toxic masculinity and the patriarchy. Apart from that, we really just strive to be as real and authentic as possible when creating, and take a magnifying glass to our experiences in the world.” Through their art these badass ladies continue to challenge the patriarchy, using their voices to encourage vast social change and it seems to me they won’t stop until they get what they want. If I were you I’d tune in and pay attention, because everyone should be listening to these women.
