2013 sophomore effort from this Indie duo featuring Dexter Tortoriello, best known for his work with Dawn Golden and Rosy Cross. Houses is comprised of just two poignantly creative musical souls based in Chicago. A married couple in real life, the enduring union of Megan Messina and Tortoriello has engendered what is their second symphonic feat, A Quiet Darkness, the follow-up to 2010's critically-acclaimed debut, All Night. A Quiet Darkness presents not only an aural feast, but a tale to follow - a tale of unrequited love which unfolds in the midst of a nuclear disaster. The album represents the journey of an enamored husband and wife desperate to reunite, yet kept apart by destruction and chaos. Each song on the album represents an abandoned house along the Highway 10 in California, where the fictional lovers so bravely trek in search of one another only to be kept apart by death's eternal embrace.
