Lance Acord's video for "Jejune Stars," a rocking new wave-ish number from Bright Eyes' latest album The People's Key, is both low key and literally explosive, with the band performing on a dimly lit stage while an elaborate fireworks display illustrates Conor Oberst's lyrics. In some cases, the fireworks spell out the words that he sings, such as "transition," "essence of life" and "kissed," and at other points, it's more impressionistic, such as when sparks stand in for the rain mentioned at the end of the chorus.
