Rising Dublin indie quartet fronted by Elijah Hewson
Dublin's Inhaler play cinematic indie rock with a post punk slant, not a million miles from the signature sound of early U2. There's a very good reason for that comparison, as frontman Elijah Hewson is the son of U2 frontman Bono.
Yet Inhaler are far from a similar-sounding branch off the family tree. The comparisons would probably still plague the band, even if they were playing happy hardcore, mostly down to Hewson's vocal similarity to his old man. Still, U2's shadow looms large over Irish music and it's no insult to say Hewson Jr's outfit share the same knack for soaring melodies and driving rhythms, along with a pop sensibility and new wave romanticism that recalls another stadium-filling outfit, The Killers.
Rather than being inducted into the family business as early as possible, Inhaler took their time before stepping out in public. The band formed in 2012 and kept playing together all through secondary school. It was only after their Leaving Cert that the quartet self-released their 2019 debut single, It Won't Always Be Like This. The track's swooning synths, jagged guitars and infectious danceability belied the band's relative youth and immediately won them a sizeable fanbase.
This was only bolstered by second single My Honest Face and a tour with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. A string of further singles demonstrated an impressive consistency and upped the anticipation for a debut album, eventually set for a summer 2021 release.
To support their debut It Won't Always Be Like This, Inhaler announced 2021 tour dates around the UK and Ireland, due to kick off in Sheffield on 28 September 2021.
