“If people want to see pictures of us swimming and hanging out in hot tubs, they can follow our hashtag #swimacrosstheworld on Instagram… Our long term goal is to transition out of music and into a pool-centered travel blog.” – Ethan Converse, KPSU Q&A with Rose Quartz
In the spring of 2015, Maureen Ochs and I (Lanny Lieu) went off to Treefort Music Festival in Boise, Idaho and made some new friends. Among these friends were the members of Denver’s sultry synth-pop band, Rose Quartz. After a couple months of on-and-off again touring, they finally made it to Portland, Oregon while on a west coast run with Russian artist, Tesla Boy. Before their last show of 2015, Rose Quartz graciously agreed to do an in-studio at KPSU, performing mostly unreleased material from their forthcoming album. You can stream the live session below.
