Live Gallery: Low At Pitchfork Fest

Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker of Low performing at Pitchfork Music Fest.

With a discography that’s spanned decades and garnered universal acclaim, Low was always going to be one of the most anticipated acts at this year’s Pitchfork Music Fest — but the release of 2021’s HEY WHAT only cemented their performance as a can’t-be-missed experience. The newest mutation of the band’s trademark minimalism, HEY WHAT harnesses electronic noise and hypnotic ambiance to create an album soaked in distortion and haunted by loneliness.

It felt only fitting to shoot their Pitchfork performance with a lower shutter speed, matching the record’s jagged edges and alien atmosphere with a glitchy aesthetic of our own. Hope you enjoy the shots, and if you haven’t checked out HEY WHAT yet, please do. Preferably with a great pair of headphones.
