Across their 29-year career, Low have put out 13 full-length studio albums. While maintaining a distinct sonic identity, the band have weaved in different styles across their discography. Their 1999 EP Christmas is one of the most beloved indie-rock takes on festive music, and brought the band to further attention when it was featured on an advert for Gap clothing.

Their two most recent LPs, Double Negative and Hey What, released by Sub Pop in 2018 and 2021 respectively, saw the band make further forays into electronic music and digital manipulation, something that was trialled on the 1999 record Secret Name, and were hailed as a magnificent career reinvention.

Following the departure of bassist Steve Garrington after 12 years and four studio albums, the band officially became a duo in 2021.

Parker is survived by her two children Hollis and Cyrus, as well as Sparhawk.
