Biography

There is more than one band known as “The Distants”

The Distants (Los Angeles, USA)

The stars collided in the surreal confines of Los Angeles, California when charismatic vocalist Guinevere King met guitarist/producer David Kelly, (formerly with Canadian indie noise rock favorite, “Kittens”), while working at The Record Plant in Hollywood. The two began writing and playing local acoustic shows in January 2004—- and by the summer, added Jamie Douglass on drums and most recently…Wisconsin native, Ben Jindra on bass.

The Distants’, debut release, “Broken Gold,” (Blue Cave Records) will transport you on a journey into the shadows of your unconscious mind without your consent. The dark musical undertones complement Guinevere’s brooding lyrics and unique vocal style—- conjuring up the spirit of Siouxsie Sioux, the desperation of Courtney Love, and the lilting melodies of The Sundays.

The Distants are constantly evolving and creating a unique, explosive wall of sound—- that displays the pop sensibilities of Blondie, the epic drama of early Jane’s Addiction—- combined with liquid grooves and sheets of guitar somewhere between Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth. Guinevere’s provocative stage performances ignite the musical supernova that is The Distants.

Successful LA residencies at Bar Sinister, King King, and Canter’s famous Kibitz Room—- and numerous shows at Club Moscow, The Viper Room, Spaceland, Silverlake Lounge, and The Troubadour have given The Distants a devoted following and a dynamic presence in LA’s ever-changing musical landscape.
