Belfast’s Cashier No. 9 have been 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. On their new bass laden track, “Death Of Fun,” none of the aforementioned comparisons fit. It is a track full of character and seems more influenced by the wry subversion of a Guy Ritchie film than any classic pop or psychedelia.
Cashier No. 9 just performed with and served as the backing band for Daniel Johnston in Belfast, and will be touring Europe in May. Their debut LP, To the Death of Fun, is out now on Bella Union. Check out their new track, “Death Of Fun,” below:
