Dublin Quartet Inhaler Releases New Single ‘We Have To Move On’ Out Now

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.
