Inhaler – “Love Will Get You There”
Dublin-based band Inhaler embrace optimism on their new song, “Love Will Get You There.” The song is from the four-piece group’s latest album Cuts & Bruises. Lead vocalist Elijah Hewson drives the song with his warm full-bodied voice. He sings uplifting lyrics like “If you hold on, my friend / Love will get you there,” while his fellow band members play a contagiously peppy melody. The band’s sound is reminiscent of early 2010s indie rock with a ’80s synthpop twist. Inhaler make this vintage-inspired sound their own on “Love Will Get You There,” a song that fans of all ages will enjoy.
Inhaler will play at House of Blues Boston on March 18.

Joseph – “Nervous System”
“Nervous System” is the first single from Portland-based sister trio Joseph’s new album The Sun. The trio members bring their harmonious and vibrant voices to this track about dealing with anxiety. It’s a song that makes listeners who struggle feel seen. The band describes the monotonous waves of anxiety that pull you down every time you try to get up. Joseph’s empowering yet comforting pop track is a reminder to save yourself first and not feed into the paranoia. They offer a safe space to listeners who are struggling mentally. The song is a reminder that there is light at the end of the tunnel even if it feels like there is no end to this vicious cycle. Joseph’s parting words instill hope and strength into everyone listening, “I know you can calm the storm in your nervous system.”
