Bottomlose Coffee Band
Bottomless Coffee Band is a multi-instrumental, alternative duo consisting of married couple Lourens and Esté Rabé from Cape Town, South Africa.
The group was formed as two students at Stellenbosch University. After completion of their studies, they both went into full time corporate careers; Lourens an Investment Analyst in the Asset Management industry whilst Esté headed up a corporate theatre company.
After releasing their debut album Room With A View at the end of 2014, BCB became crowd favourites for melodic storytelling and electrifying performances, inspiring the nostalgia of the folk-rock legends of yesteryear. With foot stomping rhythms, hard hitting lyrics and hints of the dramatic, they are impressive to watch. They maintain a “feel good” atmosphere throughout their music and performance, as is their outlook on life.
The successful release lead to the couple both leaving their corporate careers to pursue a full-time career in music. With Lourens’ background in Rock ’n Roll and Esté’s training in drama and classical singing, this duo have formed something really unique in modern day music. After several successful tours in their home country, the band embarked on their first international tour in 2016 spanning over several countries in Europe and the UK.
The highly anticipated second album, Anthelia, is set to enthral listeners and take them on yet a new musical journey. The sound is a combination of folk and rock with hints of classical tones. Their latest songs tell the stories of living life to the full; love, disappointments, inequality, passion, tears, joy, time and memories are all themes throughout the album.
Lourens and Esté wish to inspire through their music and performances as they believe that music is a tool to unite and uplift.
