4Ever Songs: U2 “With Or Without You”

This was U2‘s breakout hit in America, where they had only modest success until The Joshua Tree album. They had long been stars in their native Ireland, and with their previous album, The Unforgettable Fire, they broke through in the UK, but until “With Or Without You” their biggest US hit was “Pride (In The Name Of Love)” at #33. When they did conquer America, they did so swiftly and thoroughly; “With Or Without You” went to #1, and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” followed to the top spot.

Introducing…Inhaler

The Dublin rock band features 19-year-old Elijah Hewson (who sometimes goes by Eli for short) on vocals and rhythm, Robert Keating on bass, Ryan McMahon on drums, and Josh Jenkinson on lead guitar.

The four-piece band met while they were in school at St. Andrews College in Blackrock, Dublin, and gained popularity in the local Dublin music scene before releasing their first studio single .Hewson’s voice and stage presence are drawing widespread comparisons to those of his rocker dad, Bono of U2.

Inhaler will be embarking on their first headlining tour through Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Belgium in September and their first North American tour as the opening act for Blossoms in November. Inhaler have shared a new video for ‘Ice Cream Sundae’, shot by Irish director Hugh Mulhern.

Hit of the week: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds ‘Black Star Dancing’

Noel Gallagher, it seems, was not content to let his brother Liam Gallagher get all the solo record glory and has announced his newest EP. He’s gone as far as to share the EP’s title track to whet your appetite. But it’s nothing like you’d expect.

The track is a space-tinged groove which has more in common with EDM than Britpop and will see Noel move into a new sphere. He opened up about some of his influences for the record “It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep and ZZ Top!,” said the former Oasis leading man.

U2 celebra el 30è aniversari de ‘The Joshua Tree’

Bono i companyia tornen a Barcelona a l’estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc per la porta gran per commemorar el 30è aniversari de ‘The Joshua Tree’ (1987), el cinquè àlbum de la banda irlandesa, que inclou ‘hits’ com ‘With or without you’, ‘I still havent found what I’m looking for’ o ‘Where the streets have no name’, i que en aquesta gira interpretaran sencer.

Número 1 al Regne Unit, Irlanda i els Estats Units (el primer del grup a aconseguir-ho), va vendre més de 25 milions d’exemplars a tot el món i va convertir U2 en superestrelles.

Produït per Brian Eno i Daniel Lanois, l’icònic art de l’àlbum és obra del fotògraf i cineasta Anton Corbijn, que en aquell moment tot just començava a donar-se a conèixer.

Els teloners a la pota europea de la gira, inclòs el xou a Barcelona, seran Noel Gallagher (ex-Oasis) i els seus High Flying Birds. Convidats de luxe per a una de les grans cites amb la música en directe de l’any.

Local Bands: Deco Pilot

Inspired by the late 2000s synth-pop revival and influenced by bands such as The Killers, The Bravery, U2 and Franz Ferdinan, Deco Pilot began to combine their rock influences with atmospheric sounds. They were formed in Liverpool by two Mexicans  José Juan yand Juan Francisco. They settled down in Barcelona and they incorporated two new members. It’s a multicultural, talented new indie band with a captivating sound.
