New Music Video: Bright Eyes

The phrase "hard rock band" seemed altogether inapplicable to Bright Eyes before the release of The People's Key. It would still be a little bit of a stretch to stamp such a phrase to what Conor Oberst and his people are doing at the same level of guitar pyrotechnics. But the new video for "Jejune" exerts quite a few of the stereotypes that are typically associated with hard rock acts (like real pyrotechnics). The performance style setup paired with the fireworks and flashing lights, as well as the crude visual aids for some of Oberst's lyrics ("So I go, umbrella under my arm, into the green of the radar," featuring a radar backdrop) seem to take a turn toward the archetypal. This isn't to say that it's altogether lacking in redeeming value. It just means that if Oberst really is going for the rock band thing, he's pulling it off, while adding a few finishing touches.
