Inhaler Release New Single ‘Ice Cream Sundae’ Ahead Of US Tour Announcement

Inhaler have announced details of a brand-new single entitled ‘Ice Cream Sundae’. The song is the Dublin quartet’s first release via Interscope Records and is available at all digital retailers.  A shimmering indie-rock anthem, a sense of melancholia lurks beneath its gleaming exterior.

“It’s about loss and gain,” says singer Elijah Hewson. “I like writing about normal teenage experiences that everybody can relate to. I’m just trying to write about the joy of being alive, being a teenager, and the bad things that can come with that.”

Their songs have connected with a rapidly expanding diehard fanbase. Only a handful of tickets remain to shows on their upcoming tour around the UK, Ireland and Europe and ‘My Honest Face’ has been streamed over one million times on both Apple Music and Spotify. Their progress has been rapid; it’s just over a year ago that the band turned up to play at Ireland’s Electric Picnic festival in Hewson’s car with no crew and found a rammed tent waiting for them to perform.

“That was the moment where we were like, ‘We can do this’,” says Jenkinson. Hewson adds, “I want to ride this thing until the wheels come off.”

Inhaler are about to set off on their first North American tour in November.
