Since 1993, Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker - the married couple whose heaven-and-earth harmonies have always held Low's centre - 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.
In 2018, Low will turn 25. But the group will not commemorate their first quarter-century with mawkish nostalgia or safe runs through songbook favourites. Instead, in faithfully defiant fashion, they're releasing their most brazen, abrasive (and paradoxically, most empowering) album ever: Double Negative.
