Mary Timony’s new band Ex Hex released their ridiculously fun and catchy power-pop debut Rips last week, and today, they give us their video for the two-minute rave-up “Waterfall.” The vaguely Halloween-themed clip does fun, pastichey things with ’50s sci-fi B-movies. It stars all three Ex Hex members as rocker aliens who visit Washington, D.C. and give ray-gun punk makeovers to various Capitol Hill functionaries. If you’ve ever spent much time in our nation’s capital, you probably already know that the city could really use these ladies’ services. Wartella directed the video, and various punk rock luminaries make guest appearances: The Cramps’ Kid Congo Powers, the Make-Up’s Michelle Mae, Chain & The Gang’s Francy Z. Graham, and D.C. hardcore old-timer Alec MacKaye. Watch the video below.
Rips is out now on Merge.
