“When husband and wife Sparhawk and Parker’s eerily sympathetic voices merge in close harmony over a spindly electric guitar in a lonely sounding Silent Night, they could almost be the Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris of US indie rock.”
The Guardian (UK)

“Low, an indie band from Minnesota, specializes in music moving at the tempo of glaciers, with exquisitely precise two-part harmonies. That approach proves to be remarkably well-suited to Yule standards: when you have to consider every note, even ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ can become an object of astonishing beauty, inspiring a seasonal sense of wonder.”
— #18 of 40 Essential Christmas Albums, by Rolling Stone


In 2018, the band Low turned twenty-five. Since 1993, Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker—the married couple whose heaven-and-earth harmonies have always held the band’s center—have pioneered a subgenre, shrugged off its strictures, recorded a Christmas classic, become a magnetic onstage force, and emerged as one of music’s most steadfast and vital vehicles for pulling light from our darkest emotional recesses.
