Cashier No 9 are a five-piece from Belfast consisting of Danny Todd, James Smith, Stuart Magowan, Philip Duffy and Ronan Quinn.
The band sounds like they want to be nowhere else except driving down the west coast of the US, living the dream. Referencing everything from The Byrds to Primal Scream, their widescreen sound and tightly-crafted songs don’t aim to “nail it” in three minute pop songs, but instead wrap themselves up in a groove that can bring them to the five minute mark.
Cashier No. 9 have made sporadic appearances in the past but 2011 has seen the pace for the five-piece suddenly rocket. They signed to the Bella Union record label, home of Fleet Foxes and the Low Anthem, and released debut album To the Death of Fun in June. Oh Pity is the third single to be lifted from the album.
