Distant Creatures are a dreamy indie rock band from Washington DC. In 2015 guitarists and songwriters Chris Mathews and Dane Di Pierro formed a band inspired by classic British shoegaze and indie pop from the '80s and '90s.
Joined by a rhythm section of Ben Silvernail and Mike Lewis, the band took off after they recruited Persian vocalist Mina Karimi. In 2016 they released their debut single "Escape" through AGR / Custom Made Music. Soon after the band retreated to rural Virginia to record a full length album. In late 2017 their debut album Snares in Safe Harbors was released.
