Inhaler Earn Place In BBC Sound of 2020 Shortlist
We’re less than a week into 2020 and Inhaler are already celebrating. Yesterday, the Dublin four-piece claimed the #5 spot on the BBC Sound of 2020 shortlist after a successful breakthrough last year. Up against the likes of Celeste, YUNGBLUD and beabadoobee, only the fourth and fifth placements have been announced so far (#4 going to neo-soul songstress Joy Crookes), with the remaining three due to be confirmed every day until 9th January.
Frontman Eli Hewson told the BBC “We started two or three years ago just as kids in a school band doing covers and that sort of thing. I don’t think any of us knew what we wanted to do after school. The band was something we always enjoyed, so we decided to go for it this year and it’s really worked out well.”
