“One Minute” is out on slowplay/Republic
On the track, Hauskey ponders the fickleness of relationships and how people in our lives can go from “friends to finished,” all within a minute. The straightforward lyricism is as charming as it is relatable, and the swift but fantastic contribution from Hope Tala is the icing on the cake, giving us the perspective of “the other person.”
“One Minute” picks up where “Cream Shirt” left off, adding to an enviable collection of melody-rich songs. Hauskey’s penchant for catchy guitar licks and minimal percussion is front and center, giving us an infectious track ready for pop radio.
“Fake, fair-weather friends. Seems to be plenty, especially in the music industry,” Hauskey shares. “Being from a tiny town in the middle of nowhere, I don’t handle bullshit all that well and can’t stand people who aren’t genuine. This song wrote itself, but I’m pretty proud of the ‘friend to finished in one minute’ line. It says everything.”
Hauskey’s new song is released alongside a brilliant visual, depicting the perils of the dating world, from awkward speed dates to mobile apps. The two protagonists go through a slew of terrible dates in the video. They finally find each other in the end, only to discover they’re not a match. The video is colorful and eye-catching despite its subject matter, much like the track itself.
