After a battle with cancer, Low’s Mimi Parker, whose otherworldly vocals helped define slowcore, passed away.
How Did Mimi Parker Die?
Alan Sparhawk, Mimi Parker’s husband, and bandmate confirmed her passing. Mimi Parker was the drummer, singer, and songwriter for the Minnesota indie band Low. Parker received a December 2020 ovarian cancer diagnosis. Her age was estimated to be 54 or 55. On social media, the band posted the information.
“Friends, it’s challenging to express the entire universe in a few words, but She went away last night surrounded by love from her family and friends, including yours. Protect and revere her name. Give this opportunity to someone who needs it. Indeed, the most significant factor is love.

(August 15 statement from the band)
Low had to postpone their forthcoming foreign trip due to Mimi’s recent health issues.
‘Changes’ in Mimi Parker’s cancer treatment, according to the American indie music duo, have rendered “travel difficult at this moment.”
Parker, who received her ovarian cancer diagnosis in 2020, spoke up about it for the first time this year in a SHEROES Radio podcast episode from January.
The postponements will affect several international events, including their appearances at the UK’s Connect Festival on August 27 and All Points East on August 26.
We have to postpone our forthcoming concerts this month in Wales, Scandinavia, England, and Scotland, the band announced on Instagram.
Some of you are aware that Mimi has been battling cancer. Extensive travel is not currently possible due to recent advancements and treatment adjustments.
We are hoping that she will respond to the new medications and be able to perform at the shows we have planned for the upcoming season, including the Water Is Life festival on September 4 in Duluth.
“We sincerely apologize for any trouble caused by the changing of tickets and related travel costs. We appreciate your kind wishes and prayers as we do the same for all of you. I’m grateful. Peace.” Mimi Parker’s death from ovarian cancer in November 2022 stunned the indie rock community.
