It all started in the playground of St. Andrew’s College in  Dublin. Four friends who couldn’t stop talking about The Cure, The Stone Roses and The Strokes. They knew then what ingredients their band needed: pumping rhythms, fat basslines and infectious melodies. One hot summer, they set out a blueprint for Inhaler. The key words are energy and youthfulness. Frontman Elijah writes ‘about the fun of living and the boring things that are involved in that.’ Coming fifth in the 2020 edition of the annual BBC Sound of Music list moved things along for them. Under the expert guidance of Douglas Hart (the former bassist in The Jesus And Mary Chain) they recorded their debut ‘It Won’t Always Be Like This’ (2021).
