Inhibition is a remarkably consistent record devoid of any filler whatsoever. Every single song here has its own identity and something unique to offer while simultaneously building an overarching feeling of flow and cohesion. This makes for an incredibly rewarding listening experience, straight from the brains and hearts of four supremely talented musicians who know exactly what they want and exactly how to create it. In the opening verse of ‘Discotheque’, Josh sings ‘that look in your apocalyptic eye… so beautiful, vague and sublime’, inadvertently summarising the very essence of Inhibition itself. It is difficult to pinpoint exactly what makes this album resonate so deeply within me. It isn’t the lyrics – half the time it is impossible to decipher what the hell is being sung. It isn’t the riffs or the bass or the beats or any other quantifiable thing. It’s the rare sense of wonder and magic this music gives me that is impossible to describe with words but is felt by all of us when we hear our favourite records. I implore anybody who seeks this feeling to give Inhibition a try. You may not like it, and that’s okay. But, if you open yourself to it, there’s a good chance you will experience the exhilarating feeling of this music flooding your senses and connecting with your spirit in the deepest way possible, and that is something we all deserve. Don’t judge. Don’t analyse. Don’t think. Just feel.
