Dublin quartet INHALER releases their new single ‘We Have To Move On’ today via Interscope Records. It’s the follow-up to their first single on the label, ‘Ice Cream Sundae’, which was released in September. The jubilant indie-rock of ‘We Have To Move On’ showcases the band’s way of combining sharp, hooky melodies with expansive, atmospheric brooding. Listen to ‘We Have To Move On’:
Inhaler have just been announced as fifth place in the BBC Sound Of 2020 and recently completed a UK and European tour that saw them play to sold-out crowds. The band will head out on a North American tour this spring. See below for a complete itinerary.
Four friends, they formed the band while they were still at school, Elijah Hewson, Robert Keating, Ryan McMahon and Josh Jenkinson bonded over a love of similar groups, taking in The Stone Roses, Joy Division, The Strokes, Depeche Mode, Interpol, Kings Of Leon, The Cure and more.
Over a handful of singles, they have amassed a diehard fanbase, with their tracks being streamed over 7 million times. They make songs about being young and finding your way, music that connects.
“I’m just trying to write about the joy of being alive, being a teenager, and the bad things that can come with that. I don’t like it to be all happy, I don’t like it to be all sad,” says frontman Hewson.
