While playing in various local bands Eibhlin Palfrey and Pavol Rosa decided to reach out and find a new sound. Inhale The Fall, the duo’s first major musical exploration emerges from the ashes and takes to the Cork music scene. The band’s upcoming studio release is due out during 2013.
After searching far and wide for a drummer they recruited Brano from Slovakia and the search for a vocalist wasn’t easy either. They were looking for a specific style of vocals, someone that could deliver the songs with attitude. Jenny O’Keefe had this in abundance. The writing for the new album is well on its way towards completion.
“First and foremost, we wanted to release an album where songwriting and sound came first,” says Rosa. “We wanted these songs to have more substance with a heavier sound. We focused more on melodies and arrangements, as well as rhythms. We want to bring some rock back to Cork and develop our sound. I think this new album is heavier, and has melodies that people can still sing along with”.
In the meanwhile, Inhale The Fall have just released their single and supporting video “Weak”. The song is a heavier remake of Skunk Anansie’s classic song, first released in 1996 on their debut album Paranoid and Sunburnt.

I saw the video for “Weak” and was blown away. Jenny’s vocals are reminiscent of Ann Wilson and Pat Benatar. She takes you back to the good old days when women didn’t have to sound whiney and have processed vocals to draw in a crowd. And she also has the same ability to put so much emotion into a song. Considering the fact that Skin is a pretty hard act to follow vocally, Jenny belts out this one quite effortlessly, putting in her own personal interpretation which is impressive to say the least.
The entire band however, delivers a feisty, unapologetic rock n’ roll sound. The outstanding musicianship is especially evident in the recording of this song, as all the band members meld together to form a formidable sonic assault. Here you won’t find anything fancy, experimental, or revolutionary. It’s straight up, in your face Rock. Everything on this single is produced perfectly and exemplifies the essence and feeling of what rock should be.
Translated into into video Inhale The Fall’s version of “Weak” could be titled “hot rocker chick and slamming rock band deliver the hard hitting sounds!” This band plays rock with such enthusiasm you can feel it! If you really want to be entertained, watch the video.
“Weak”, already a well-known hit, will become an instant favorite your second time around. If you like metal, rock, or anything vaguely similar, definitely checkout Inhale The Fall. They combine hard rock with incredible vocals. Overall I strongly recommend this passionate anthem to anyone interested in crunching rock rhythms.
