Rose Quartz has had a busy 2015. The Denver duo spent most of the spring on tour, and now, upon returning to town, have released a music video for the song "Leaving Now" — a single from the EP Axis of Love.
The video was filmed all over Brooklyn, and directed by Fredo Jones from Denver-based Blurred Pictures. It's a semi-dark concept to go with a semi-dark song. As Rose Quartz said in an interview earlier this year , the material off "Axis of Love" is its darkest yet. The video starts off pretty basic, with a couple fighting and wandering around Brooklyn in anger. But then it takes a turn.
Band member Ethan Converse isn't willing to admit too much about the video, choosing to leave it up to interpretation.
"The first half is fairly literal going with the lyrics to the song," Converse said. "As far as the concept goes. I know it sounds like a cop out, but we'd really like to not explain it, and leave it open to interpretation."
