Official video for Goldstar by Cashier No.9

Directed by Glenn Leyburn And Lisa Barros D'sa

Starring Jack Pakenham 

Simon Raymonde of Bella Union has had a pretty good track record over the years. He’s managed to sign some pretty amazing names in the last couple of years…Alessi’s Ark, Fleet Foxes, the Walkmen and Robin Hitchcock.

So what act is Raymonde’s latest acquisition? Cashier No. 9, a young-ish band from Belfast. The strange name? Comes from the name of a coffee bar that lead vocalist/guitarist Daniel Todd used to work at, before he gave it up for the musician life. And evidently (and to my great surprise), they’ve been around for a while: Paul Lester wrote about them on the Guardian New Band of the Day 3 years ago. Interestingly, back then Lester grouped them with Madchester bands the Stone Roses and Happy Mondays. Perhaps…

This band calls their sound “pop / psychedelic” on their MySpace. I usually go running away from bands that call themselves “psychedelic” – which conjures up images of trippy dippy, stoned musicians wearing tie dye shirts. Regardless of how you feel about that label, listen to and watch the video for the Cashier No. 9 track ‘Goldmine’ below. It’s like they took the introverted dreaminess out of Coldplay (note: no piano in here at all), dipped it in honey and put it to a jaunty tempo. With the echo effects, okay, I can see in this track a possible comparison between them and shoegaze.

I don’t know enough about Belfast bands to say if they’re in front of the next big wave to come out of the Emerald Isle, but they don’t sound anything like Two Door Cinema Club (so don’t even go there). So hopefully they will come into their own and not be compared to that other indie band from Northern Ireland. Good luck to them, I say. But if you stop to consider that one of their tracks just missed getting playlisted on 6music recently, I don’t think they really need my help.

Cashier No. 9?s debut album, ‘To the Death of Fun’, will be released on 20 June on Bella Union.
