Hi, Rookies!

Mimi Parker is the drummer of the Minnesota-based indie rock band Low. Low has been making dreamy music since 1993, and they just released their excellent 12th studio album, Double Negative. You can catch them live on their North American and European tour, which kicks off next month. We’re big fans, and are so excited Mimi took the time to answer your thoughtful questions about love, conquering the fear of intimacy, friendship, and more.

Take it away, Mimi!
