Some songs bump into your life at a very peculiar moment, expressing something that you might not be ready to admit to yourself at the time but resonating with you on a deeper level all the same. Avoiding a Fight is one of those tunes.

It was written and self-recorded a few years back by Ben Mason, a versatile singer-songwriter from Australia. I was happy to learn that Mason has picked it up recently again for a remix and a very lovely video, which was shot in the streets of Melbourne. Avoiding a Fight will be part of the upcoming album, Holes and Corners, to be released in July.
