Dublin quartet Inhaler have announced details of their new single ‘When It Breaks’, out now on Polydor Records.

A searing indie-rock anthem, ‘When It Breaks’ was recorded over the summer and its lyrical themes chime with the unease and disquiet of the world in 2020.

Speaking about how ‘When It Breaks’ came together, the band said: “We wrote ‘When It Breaks’ in the last couple of months. Over lockdown we were floating around the instrumental demo, it was dark but also pretty hopeful sounding. When we went back to the studio over the summer and really got to put our heads together again, we felt like we had to write something about what was going on and how we felt about it.”

Inhaler continue, saying “Coming off tour into lockdown was a huge adjustment for us after we had just got used to life on the tour. At first, it was a welcome break but pretty soon we were dying to get back to any festival or any gig where we could get our fix!

“The lyrics and the music communicate the anxiousness of how we were all feeling and still are now a couple months later. It’s definitely the most politically-driven song we’ve released so far. It’s our interpretation of this strange and imperfect world we’ve come to live in. Things are gonna change and we are gonna be there when they do.”

Inhaler are Elijah Hewson, Robert Keating, Ryan McMahon and Josh Jenkinson. The four-piece formed whilst still at school in Dublin, bonding over a love of Joy Division, The Stone Roses, The Strokes, Depeche Mode, Interpol, The Cure and more.

The band have made amassed a diehard fanbase despite only releasing a handful of singles, each displaying the band’s knack of intricate songcraft and sonic grandeur. They recently completed work on their highly-anticipated debut album, expected for release early next year.
