The first official release from Fight Nice, Abbotsford kicks off a series of indie rock singles showcasing thoughtful songwriting, group arrangement, and meticulous DIY production.


I don’t want to be close to you
Cuz I don’t want to react
You’ve got some kind of energy
And that’s what’s pushing me back

I try so hard not to hate things

I know you say you’re just passing through
But I think you should care
You run away while I will stay
You’re always halfway home from somewhere

So if you’re going to Abbotsford
Where there’s an ice cream cone
Take a picture for old time’s sake
Then leave me alone.
