Reigning Days, the rock trio from Devonshire, have dropped the video for their new song, Inhaler.
Following previous single Gravity, the track is another taste of their upcoming debut album, Eclipse, and the accompanying visuals document the band’s live performances during Independent Venue Week in early February.
“Inhaler was one of the later songs written for the album and it bridges the light and dark elements that typify the album’s sound,” says Reigning Days singer and guitarist Dan Steer.
“We love playing it live as the audience seem to get its energy and vibe and throw themselves into it”.
Since breaking out with songs like Friendly Fire from their 2016 self-titled debut EP, the group have supported the likes of Feeder and Enter Shikari, and performed at festivals including Download and The Great Escape.
“We’re just three lads from Devon trying to make waves in a sometimes dull, turbulent scene,” reveals Steer of the band’s M.O.
“We’re all over the shop with our influences, which works well for us because we get unique sounds. It’s not as if we’re stuck in one genre like some indie kids! It’s probably me bringing the electronic influences; I love a good synth pad. But we’ve moved away from that… the new material is more riff-oriented and about getting the biggest sound possible.”
Perhaps unsurprisingly then, Eclipse is being compared to LPs by Muse, Biffy Clyro, and Royal Blood.
“We each put a piece of our hearts and souls into this record and to finally be at a point where we can share it with everyone is the best feeling,” says Steer of the album recorded at Abbey Road.
“Now we just have to play it for you all.”
The band will be doing just that over the coming months, with a return to The Great Escape in May already confirmed.
Eclipse is out on 13th April.
