Inhaler get their first SOTW with ‘Falling In’
Dublin 4-piece Inhaler are back with their second single of 2020 with new tune ‘falling in’.
The track was set to be released at the beginning of the year following ‘We Have To Move On’ but unfortunately it got pushed back due to lockdown and the ongoing pandemic, as did their Irish tour and plans to play some of this summer’s festivals like This Is Tomorrow and Neighbourhood Weekender.
Fortunately, on Wednesday they dropped noisy new track ‘Falling In’, which is taken from their upcoming debut LP and provides some insight into the bands approach to keeping their egos in check with all of their new found glory and success. This theme is showcased in the tracks honest and straightforward lyrics, as well as frontman Elijah’s distinct and familiar voice which shows off his range nicely.
“A shot in the chest / Couldn’t wake you up / You need a human touch / It’s never enough”
The track’s sound is more mature, intricate and elaborate than some of their previous releases. ‘Falling In’ starts off simply with Elijah’s powerful voice over a lively drum beat, then jumps into life with electrifying guitar synths and a muffled chorus. ‘Falling In’ sounds pretty influenced by U2 with its 80’s grooves and euphoric vocals, which is definitely a good thing. The track shows Inhalers maturity as they grow together as a band and push the boundaries of guitar lead indie rock.
The soaring single marks another step in the right direction for Irish breakthrough act Inhaler, who have proved their talent and success as a young band without yet releasing a debut album. ‘Falling In’ is infectious and catchy but also proves that Inhaler are evolving with every release, personally I can’t wait to hear what they do next!
