Low is an American indie rock band formed in Duluth, Minnesota, in 1993. The band's original lineup consisted of vocalists and guitarists Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, bassist John Nichols, and drummer Zak Sally.
Low began their career playing slow, minimalist rock music, and their early work was heavily influenced by the DIY ethos of the punk rock scene. Over the course of their career, the band's sound has evolved to incorporate elements of drone, ambient, and experimental music.
Low released their debut album, "I Could Live in Hope," in 1994, and they have since released over a dozen more albums, including "Long Division" (1995), "The Great Destroyer" (2005), and "Ones and Sixes" (2015). These albums have earned the band critical acclaim and a dedicated fanbase, and they have been hailed as one of the pioneering bands of the slowcore and post-rock genres.
In addition to their work as a band, members of Low have also released solo albums and collaborated with other artists. Despite their low-key, understated approach to music, Low have earned a reputation as one of the most innovative and influential indie rock bands of their era.
In 2022, Mimi Parker, 55, passed away at her home in Duluth from ovarian cancer.
