‘When We Were Hooligans’

North London's Louis Dunford can only ever be his true self.

As a songwriter, he leans towards the grit of the everyday, allowing a little magic to intermingle with those memories.

Debut EP 'The Morland' is out now, and it captures a sense of life on his estate growing up - the mistakes, the secrets, and the sense of community.

'When We Were Hooligans' is taken from the EP, and it's a self-admitted "love letter" from the songwriter to his youth.

Honing in on those scrapes and misadventures, it seems to epitomise "the childhood experience that most kids from my generation live through growing up in Britain."

There's a sense of relatable nostalgia that runs through Dunford's music, one that is brought to life by film maker Milo Blake in this new video.

An evocative watch, 'When We Were Hooligans' is driven forwards by a sense of honesty, and truth.
