The Band

Sci-Fi Romance plays folk music. And with our new EP, it’s heavier, more insistent folk music for heavier, more insistent times.

Our new EP The Rain Becomes a River is out now.

Our last album, Dreamers & Runaways, is available here in digital, vinyl, and CD. When you order the record via bandcamp, you also get a digital booklet and digital copy of the comic created for the “Voices” music video. iTunes

Based in Los Angeles, the band is singer-songwriter Vance Kotrla, as well as a group of collaborators including Jody Stark (cello), Mr. Mike (drums, art), Johnnie Kotrla (bass), Kevin Karr (bass), Dylan Kotrla (piano), Kurt Bloom (drums), 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, and 2016’s highly praised Dust Among the Stars. They have also released two EPs, October, based on classic horror movies and recorded on an old analogue cassette machine, and a collection of singles and b-sides, A Burning Ember to a Grove of Trees.
