Glaciers is artist and singer Nicolas Burrows, with a revolving cast of band members for live shows, currently William Edmonds (Now Owl), Laurence J. Byrne and Oli Deakin (Olfar, Bear Driver). Fueled by a trip to Norway and continued with time spent wandering in North America, Glaciers is largely the result of being away from other musicians and having to work things out alone, with minimal equipment and living in temporary residences.
Glaciers is graceful folk-tinged songs based around a love of singing. Influences include west coast US musicians such as Phil Elverum, Karl Blau and Kyle Field. Solo shows are intimate and quiet.

Vest For Tysso is a band led by William Edmonds, musician, artist and designer who works with Nous Vous Collective. Over the past few years the band has seen a few different formations, the current one featuring Stephen Clatworthy, Jonny Fryer (These Mountains) and fellow Nous Vous member Nicolas Burrows (Glaciers).
Vest For Tysso was born in Norway when William and Nicolas went travelling around Scandinavia. Ice, mountains, bears and fjords still inspire many of the songs. For their second gig they were invited to play Pop Montreal festival and now after a brief break they are back having recently supported Casiotone For the Painfully Alone, Blue Roses and Vetiver, among others, with a new sound and new songs.
From the Leeds Music Scene website:
“Awash with beautifully melancholic vocals and a healthy combination of dreamy acoustic and synthesised arrangements, Vest For Tysso serve up a delicious helping of electronically charged indie-pop with a resonating experimental outlook.”
From the POP Montreal program:
“Comin’ straight outta Compton, or rather, Leeds, Glacier fans will enjoy the UK’s newest jam bringing pop down from the mountains and into your Japanese living room. Sometimes it’s just best to go to a show, rather than try to describe one. Quite possibly the festival’s sleeper hit.”
