The Distants were an American indie rock band, based out of Los Angeles, California.



  • Guinevere King: Vocals
  • David Kelly: Guitar
  • Jamie Douglass: Drums
  • Steve Alderfer: Bass (2004-2007)
  • Ben Jindra: Bass (2007–present)
  • By the beginning of 2008, undisclosed but implicitly tragic personal reasons had seen King suddenly depart from the band, leading the remaining three members to form a side project named Echo Hawk. Kelly's death shortly afterwards on March 30, 2008, effectively signalled the end of both bands.
