The Band

Sci-Fi Romance plays folk music. When we’re loud, we’re good and damn loud. When we’re quiet, we’re trying to break your heart.

Based in Los Angeles, the band is singer-songwriter Vance Kotrla, as well as a group of collaborators including Jody Stark (cello), Kurt Bloom (drums), Mr. Mike (drums, art), Johnnie Kotrla (bass), and other wonderful people. The band’s debut album, …and surrender my body to the flames, was released in 2010, and followed up in 2012 by the concept album The Ghost of John Henry. Their most recent release is the EP October, based on classic horror movies and recorded on an old analogue cassette machine.
