Inhaler – Live At Corona Capital Festival 2022 – November 22, 2022 – Band soundboard –
Inhaler this weekend. An Indie four-piece from Dublin around since 2012. Despite the family pedigree (lead singer Elijah Hewson is Bono’s son), they’ve been putting in the work, doing the slog and climbing the ladder lo, these past ten years. Once trashed as “the worst Heavy Metal Band on earth” (when they were 12), Inhaler have made numerous twists, turns and musical refinements before getting where they are now. In 2020 they were rated Number 5 in the BBC’s Sound Of . . .music poll and have released over 7 singles before releasing their debut album, “It Won’t Always Be Like This” in July 2021. Shortly after, the album hit Number 1 in the UK as well as #1 in Ireland – and wound up hitting top-10 throughout Europe. A follow up album, Cuts & Bruises is slated for release in February 2023. At the moment they’re in the middle of a tour which should be taking them pretty much everywhere, including the U.S. in early Spring and all over Europe until July of next year.
Fortunately for everyone, Inhaler are being judged on their merits as musicians as well as song writers and not by their potential connections. But that should come as no surprise – if you are seriously rotten as a musician, all the connections in the world aren’t going to help and could just as easily become a hinderance, which makes the work park of getting your music across that much more arduous. So making it on your own, with no familial assistance is an accomplishment and it would be safe to say Inhaler stand very well on their own.
And hearing what they were up to four days ago gives you a clue there’s a bright future ahead.
Listen for yourself.
