The latest band to come from Ireland is Inhaler, a pop-rock band whose debut album, It Won’t Always Be Like This, just dropped. Oh…and the lead singer is Elijah Hewson, the 21-year-old son of U2’s Bono.

With a pedigree like that, you’d think Inhaler’s fanbase would be well-versed in U2. Not necessarily.

Hewson said in an interview with Extra.ie, “It’s now nice seeing a young crowd down the front who maybe don’t even know who U2 are. People can have their preconceptions when they come to see us. But as long as they come to see us, we don’t mind. It opens doors but at the same time, they’ll shut just as fast if you’re not good enough.”

Inhaler is off to a great start. Their debut album is the first album from an Irish band in 13 years to top the album charts in the U.K. You can hear the album’s title track in the video below. It Won’t Always Be Like This is available for download and streaming here.
