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.

Our new album, Dreamers & Runaways, is available for pre-order right now. When you pre-order the record (digital, CD, or vinyl), you get an immediate download of the tracks “Voices” and “A Hymn for the Invisible.” 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), 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.
