It’s been a little more than two years since I profiled local electronic-pop duo Houses—aka Dexter Tortoriello and Megan Messina—as they prepared to release their debut album, All Night. Tortoriello was just beginning to pour his energy into supporting himself with his music, and it looks like things have turned out pretty well in that capacity; his solo side project, Dawn Golden & Rosy Cross, got picked up by Diplo’s Mad Decent label, and Houses recently inked a deal with Downtown Records, which has released albums by Gnarls Barkley, Justice, Santigold, and Kid Sister.

These days Tortoriello and Messina are living in LA and prepping Houses’ sophomore album, A Quiet Darkness, which is slated to drop in April. Yesterday Pitchfork premiered the video for the duo’s new single, “The Beauty Surrounds,” which is today’s 12 O’Clock Track.
