Inhaler Aren’t Breaking Any Hearts This February With Their New Album ‘Cuts & Bruises’

Inhaler Release Latest Single "If You're Gonna Break My Heart"

If you’ve been on the alternative-indie radar recently, then you’ve most likely heard of Inhaler, and if you haven’t? Catch up but let us introduce you to the Irish 4-piece band, comprising Elijah Hewson, Josh Jenkinson, Robert Keating, and Ryan McMahon, who is slowly but surely taking over everyone’s playlists.

‘If You’re Gonna Break My Heart’

Inhaler is back with the lead single, ‘If You’re Gonna Break My Heart, from their sophomore album Cuts & Bruises. The band released its debut album, It Won’t Always Be Like This, back in 2021 and has racked up over 75 million Spotify streams. The album also became the fastest-selling debut album on vinyl by any band this century, which is pretty impressive for a debut.

‘If You’re Gonna Break My Heart’ follows behind two other tracks featuring on their upcoming album, and it’s shaping up to be banger after banger. Speaking on the new song, Inhaler recognized Bob Dylan, The Band, and Bruce Springsteen alongside many others as inspirations for the track – “Listening to these artists while traveling on big open highways resonated with us and helped shape this song into making us sound more like a live band than we had before.”

From the opening strum of the guitar, this is a song written with obvious thought to touring, and we can already tell this is going to be a fan favorite from the setlist.

Cuts & Bruises

February 17th sees the release of their new album, Cuts & Bruises, which took shape in Dublin over Christmas 2021 after a long period of touring. The band, who have been friends since school, used their tour to understand what lane they wanted their new releases to go in.

It was just the four of us jamming in the live room and trying to come up with ideas on the spot … playing live for a few months beforehand really helped shape what kind of direction we wanted to take it in.

The 11-track album sees titles like, ‘So Far, So Good,’ ‘Perfect Storm’ and, ‘Dublin In Ecstasy,’ which, if they’re anything like the previously released, ‘If You’re Gonna Break My Heart,’ ‘These Are The Days,’ and ‘Love Will Get You There,’ we’re all in for an absolute smashing album.
