For Those I Love drops a football themed music video

For Those I Love - AKA David Balfe - has released a football-inspired music video for his hit track ‘To Have You’.

The electronic artist dropped the new visual amidst the heights of football festivity during the Euros, directly from Dublin’s Tolka Park, which premiered on The FADER this morning.

“The trip out to the football can feel like a pilgrimage. Every mix of bliss and pain and glory is felt in the terraces each week, but it's been lost for us all since the world changed overnight,” he said.

"Being back in the stands as ‘To Have You’ was shot felt like a shower of relief and beauty.”

The music video documents Dublin at its most raw, celebrating the football spirit that Balfe has previously said to have accommodated himself and his friends while growing up in Dublin.

Coming from his critically acclaimed debut record which released earlier this year with a recurring theme of football, the self-titled album even features Balfe’s hometown team, Shelbourne FC, or the Coolock Reds, on the cover.

“The track is very much about survival, reflecting on a world me and mine grew up through and confronting those who question it. I am blessed to be able to hear this in a new light now as it's mixed with Niall's art,” said Balfe.

Directed by Niall Trask and produced by Dan Matthews, the pair said: “The video is about finding community in a time of bleakness and disconnection.”

For Those I Love is playing a sold-out tour UK tour this October. Watch the new visual for ‘To Have You’ below.
