As the Susan Miller followers among you know, Mercury is currently in retrograde. The Philadelphia indie-rock band Purling Hiss knows this too!

The lo-fi enthusiasts premiered the lead single “Mercury Retrograde” from their upcoming Water on Mars a couple of weeks ago, and now they’ve got a video to match — and you can watch it exclusively here.

The clip is appropriately out-there, with the trio performing in front a green screen in the kaleidoscopic cosmos. Everything about the clip — the slackery sweaters, the Dinosaur Jr.-y sounds, the unkempt hair — feels like something that could’ve been featured on MTV’s 120 Minutes in its heyday.

In other words, it’s really good. Check it out for yourself below:

Water on Mars won’t be out until March 19, but you can pre-order it here. And to top it all off, you can also catch them when they hit the road next month:
