Sounds of Summer
CASHIER NO 9
Is there a Belfast sound..? Van Morrison… Stiff Little Fingers… Divine Comedy… Cashier No. 9 sound nothing like any of these, but they’re as innovative and different as anything that’s come from the city. They could be from California, or Manchester, or any number of places, having been variously compared with The Byrds, Beach Boys, Stone Roses, Pavement, CSN, The Flaming Lips and many others. Yet with their rich vocal harmonies, bold guitar textures and supremely catchy melodies, they’ve created a sound that’s indeterminably none of these yet equally vibrant.
Cashier No. 9’s debut is produced by acclaimed DJ, film and music producer David Holmes. Combined with the mature, wryly humorous song-writing of frontman Danny Todd, the result is eclectic, layered, guitar-jangling country-laced pop. Within an ocean of standout tracks, opener and single ‘Goldstar’ is resplendent with bells and cascading melodies; ‘Lost at Sea’ skiffles with supreme rolling rhythms and sense of the 60s reborn; ‘Flick of the Wrist’ has an epic, Californian aura; and ‘Oh Pity’ sweeps the listener along with waves of rich harmonies.
