Bottomless Coffee Band to release highly anticipated second album, Anthelia
“The ability to see beauty in everything and everyone around us.”
Folk-pop duo, Bottomless Coffee Band, has steadily been making waves in the South African Music industry and fans will be delighted with the news that their second full length album Anthelia is due for release in February 2018. The band takes a more flavoured turn with this new offering and the album consists of 11 brand new tracks. Lourens and Esté Rabé of BCB says that the aim was to make a diverse album, while maintaining the ethos of the band. They have carefully conjured up songs that stay true to their aim to “create a feel-good vibe with a strong message”.
They have even included one or two surprises for Afrikaans fans. This album will make you dance, smile, cry and sing along, all in the song-journey of one couples experience of life.
About The Band
The duo 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.
They have played an average of 150 shows per year since the release of their debut album “Room With A View” in 2015. The successful release lead to the couple both leaving their corporate careers to “take the leap of faith” and build a career in full-time music. They embarked on numerous tours reaching as far as Namibia, Belgium, The Netherlands and the UK.
About The Album
The name, “Anthelia”, is inspired by the title track that captures the essence of what the album has to say. It means: “The ability to see angels”. The duo translates this into their own interpretation: “The ability to see beauty in everything and everyone around us.”
Bottomless Coffee Band also released a video of the first single off the album on 12 December 2017. The single, titled ‘Broken System’, was also submitted to SA Radio Stations in January 2018.
