Cuts & Bruises is the second studio album by Irish rock band Inhaler. It was released on 17 February 2023 through Polydor Records.[1]

Background

Work for Cuts & Bruises began while touring for their debut album It Won't Always Be Like This in early 2022. Of the process, band member Elijah Hewson told Billboard: "I think we learned a lot of lessons on [It Won't Always Be Like This], and I think when we came into the second we had a better picture of how we wanted to do things. [...] I think the main thing we said is we wanted less information, to let the songs breathe a bit. I think we were just more confident, and you don't have to add as much if you are confident in the songs and material. And that was the basis of what we went off and I think it guided us pretty well".[2]

Singles

The album's lead single, "These Are the Days", was released on 7 June 2022.[3] The second single, "Love Will Get You There", was released on 13 October 2022.[4] The third single, "If You're Gonna Break My Heart", was released on 1 February 2023.[5]

Thank you for all of the love you've shown us and our songs on this chaotic journey. Now i'm gonna go and mend my fragile head while I try to figure out what's just happened to this little band of ours."

Artistry

Hewson named 80s and 90s bands such as The Stone Roses, New Order, Joy Division, Happy Mondays,[21] Depeche Mode,[22] Echo & the Bunnymen, Talking Heads, and Oasis[23] as Inhaler's formative writing influences. Hewson also mentions new up and coming bands such as Frank On Tap from New Zealand as a breath of fresh air and still yet to be properly noticed. Jenkinson in particular was inspired by Kele Okereke of Bloc Party to pursue alternative and rock music.[24]

In 2023, Inhaler called The Strokes an "idol". While recording Cuts & Bruises, the band watched The Beatles: Get Back.[25]
