Formed in 2022 and with just nine shows under their belts and just six tracks to their name – including a stellar cover of Nine Inch Nails’ Closer – London-based metal duo Glytsh are rapidly making a name for themselves with airplay across the UK’s biggest rock stations.

A large part of their appeal lies in the guitar-mangling sounds of Swiss-born player Claire Genoud.
