Ted Hajnasiewicz “This Town Is Not For Me”
Minneapolis based Ted Hajnasiewicz’s new single, “This Town Is Not For Me” comes out of left field at just the right time while the world takes a good look at itself to find things aren’t so smooth running these days. It also deals with what that is like from one town’s perspective, leaving him “just another face that feels out of place.” And not much is known to me about this artist, so one song isn’t easy to carry on about, but some information can be found at his website as he gears up for a full-length LP release in January 2019. This track serves to help lead the album release out and it gives an idea of what it has manifested into.
Hajnasiewicz can be seen playing year-round in the Minnesota area, doing shows to enthusiastic crowds, and this new single should do the business for his fans as well as getting his music to the world for the masses to hear. This is a deep track with hit potential to the right stations that carry a lot of Americana and folk music programming.
It’s a very melancholy tune to start with, and the lyrics very poignant and reflective of the current times and struggles. Hajnasiewicz, as far as I know has been releasing music since 2015, and this comes along right on time to go into 2019 with much momentum.
There is a promo video online to promote this single, but it’s more of a journey in a car through the town, rather than containing any specific visuals. Once you read the lyrics you’re always more on board with a song, but it’s also equally entertaining in the instrumental department, especially as the track continues to build into a frenzy before slowing back down for a smooth finish.
It comes enjoyable to find how how this song is with only a little bit of film going in the background. It is also recommended to look up more of the music from Hajnasiewicz, as you’ll find it to all be on the same quality level as this track.
I don’t know whether-or not Minneapolis is the town in question, but as songs can tend to suggest, it could be about any town as the proverbial. The reason I say that is because I find that town to be of great musical significance for just about anyone who lives there, so the tagline is general either way as metaphors go.
The overall ambience of the track is modern but with a vintage appeal at the same time, while everyone struggles to blend the two instead of being just one or the other, which is where he seems to find his groove. There’s also a difference to some of his music that doesn’t follow this type of song.
Hajnasiewicz himself has been known to play an assortment of genres, including gospel and even rock and pop, so he seems to come around to a full circle album if this track is any indication, and it comes recommended to help look forward to his upcoming album and I look forward to his next single as well.
