The patron saint of roséwave and inspiration for our summertime sadness playlist herself Kacey Musgraves understands that office politics aren't easy. From your jerk of a boss to the righteous coworkers who seem to know everything, wouldn't it be wonderful to shoo away the stuck-up buzzkills that inhabit your drab workspace?

"High Horse," a disco-pop Song of the Summer contender from Musgraves' Golden Hour -- one of our favorite records of the year — now has a video that does just that.

In a nod to the classic movie 9 to 5, Musgraves, clad in tangerine, daydreams an escape from her stifling office and sleezy supervisor: a karaoke session under the shimmer of disco balls and neon light, bezdazzled microphone in hand. The kissoff bop becomes a way to blow off steam, and come 5 o'clock, Musgraves is ready to ride off into the sunset, oversized sunglasses and all.

Golden Hour is out now via MCA Nashville.
