For Those I Love shares 3Olympia concert in full on YouTube 

Ciarán Howley

The spoken-word electronic musician performed an immersive set in November 2021 which can now be streamed online in its entirety. 

For Those I Love has shared the concert footage from their headline show at the 3Olympia Theatre in November 2021. 

The overlaying footage from the show is shown through split-screen in the video giving viewers a close approximation of seeing the show in-person. 

For Those I Love is a musical project from David Balfe fusing electronic music and spoken word poetry, inspired by the death of Paul Curran, a poet and a friend who passed away. Over the course of the 9-track self-titled album, Balfe eulogises for his former bandmate on emotive yet cathartic tracks like ‘I Have a Love‘ and ‘The Shape of You‘.

The album emerged during lockdown where its themes of loss no doubt connected with many, while receiving high praise from critics. ‘For Those I Love’ was hailed by Rolling Stone as the best album of 2021 and won the Choice Music Prize for Best Album that same year.

For those who missed the sold-out show, this will definitely come as a welcome surprise.
