Combine the Victorious have just released a new video for its song “Smoke and Choke”. The song is from the Vancouver band’s five-song 2012 EP, Crumbling Hearts.

The video, directed by notorious Scandinavian Stefan J Sigerson, has some futuristic settings and effects that complement the song’s futuristic electro-pop sound. Check it out below:

Founded by Mark Henning (formerly of Vancouver band Pure) and clothing designer/Scottish person Isabelle Dunlop in 2007, Combine the Victorious released its first album the same year. That record, The World Over, was followed by two EPs, including 2008’s Disagreements. Crumbling Hearts also includes a song called “Glasgow”, furthering the Scottish connection.

Recently, the group has added guitarist Justin “Juice” Kadis, whose favourite bands include Big Country (also Scottish), and keyboardist Misty Reid, both formerly of the Yoko Casionos. Expect a full-length from the band later in 2013.
