Inhaler’s Music Is Exciting And Energetic/ 來自愛爾蘭 Inhlaer的音樂如乾冰和汗水
The Dublin four-piece band, Inhaler, exposes the generation's yearning for love through their debut album It Won't Always Be Like This. The philosophy of music and life showcased in this remarkable record, both in the lyrics and rhythm, demonstrated how this world won't always be like this. What do they think of life? They think, "It means energy and excitement and dry ice and sweat."
People who like music occasionally dream of performing on the stage or singing in karaoke with friends to enjoy life and music at the same time. No matter if tangibly or intangibly, directly or indirectly, while our soul still burns with the fire of youth, we can compose a touching melody to symbolise that we only live once.
"Music can't be rated on a scale." - Elijah Hewson
When the pandemic started affecting our world, most people thought it wouldn’t go on too long. However, people’s expectation of returning to normality didn't fit with reality. Consequently, the virus created a pause in our life, and especially in the music industry. In the period of stillness, musicians started thinking about how to break through. Therefore, discussing the value of music versus lyrics, Elijah Hewson, the vocalist of Inhaler, said, "I think music because obviously the lyrics are very important, I think they go hand in hand. It can't really… Music can't be rated on a scale."
Indeed, music can't be divided into lyrics, and melody. However, being mindful of the audience's feedback, isn't this also an important thing to consider for Inhaler?
