The Details are an indie rock band formed in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The band, formed in late 2005, features vocalist and guitarist Jon Plett (The Home Team), bassist Keli Martin (Sixty Stories, The Western States, Rebel Yell), guitarist Sean Vidal (The Home Team) and drummer Shaun Gibson (Boats, Oldfolks Home, The Bonaduces). Sean and Jon were previously in the band The Home Team. Their current record label is Parliament of Trees.

Within a year of playing around Winnipeg, the band released its debut EP, Marching Sound. The band then embarked on several cross-Canada tours, establishing a hard reputation. In September 2007, the band released their debut full-length titled, Draw a Distance. Draw a Border. which was met with great enthusiasm from radio and bloggers. The Details announced in January 2010 that they had completed work on a full-length album Lost Art, produced by The Weakerthans guitar player Stephen Carroll and Brandon Reid (The National (band)).

Lost Art was released on May 31, 2011. It contains guest appearances from Rusty Matyas of Imaginary Cities, Jenn Grant and Kinley Dowling of Hey Rosetta!. It was produced by The Weakerthans guitar player Stephen Carroll and Brandon Reid (The National (band)), mixed by Daryl Smith (The Weakerthans, Blue Rodeo), and mastered by Ryan Morey (Arcade Fire).

The Original Mark EP, a teaser for Lost Art, was announced for a November 16, 2010, release. It contains a pair of songs from Lost Art, as well as a couple of leftovers from the Draw a Distance. Draw a Border. sessions, and a remixed version of their song Floor Plans.

Draw a Distance. Draw a Border. included appearances by The Weakerthans' Stephen Carroll and Paper Moon's Allison Shevernoha.

The Details have shared the stage with bands such as Jimmy Eat World, Stars (Canadian band), The Constantines, Mother Mother.
