Inhaler Share New Video and Announce Irish Dates

Hotly-tipped Dublin quartet Inhaler have shared the video for their latest single ‘We Have To Move On’ released on Polydor 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. The band have also just announced Irish dates.

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 sell over 7,000 tickets and play to frenzied, sold-out crowds. They will follow that run with an extensive UK tour next year that will include a sold-out show at London’s Heaven on Thursday 20th February, their biggest headline show to date. Kasabian recently announced Inhaler as one of the support acts at their huge hometown show at Leicester’s Victoria Park next summer.

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.
