The severity of grief often comes across most clearly in art. What is the purpose of art but to
depict human emotions for others to understand and empathise with? On his gripping new
album For Those I Love, David Balfe offers a highly personalised portrait of love, loss,
confusion, nostalgia and pain – that is to say, the Dublin songwriter/producer walks you
through the early stages of mourning. Each savage emotion comes across as tangible and
real. Balfe makes spoken word music over urbane electronica that takes its cues from
alternative hip-hop and various forms of club music. His heavily accented delivery and
penchant for familiar Dublin cadences means writing can only be set in one place, elevating
the album among the great modern
works set in the city. A project that started out as an ode to friendship was remodeled under
a tragic cloud. Balfe conceived of For Those I Love as a solo project when he was still a
member of punk band Burnt Out. Its purpose was to capture the tight-knit friendships – that
is, the beauty of the relationships that exist between groups of young men that often go
unspoken. Particularly, he wanted to depict his connection with best friend and Burnt Out
bandmate, the poet Paul Curran. Tragically, Curran died in early 2018. In his grief, Balfe has
created an album infused with the love and bond that existed between the pair.
