In Houses’ melancholic “The Beauty Surrounds” video, you can watch frontman Dexter Tortoriello build a tent in the desert and pine for the absent Megan Messina. Their latest video for “Beginnings” — the first track on their forthcoming album A Quiet Darkness — is a carefree prelude to the inevitable emotional disaster to follow. Messina smiles unblinkingly into the camera as she leans her head out of a car window, hair billowing in slow-motion. Watch below.
