Location: Birmingham

8 months ago, Nicole, Ryan and Sam came together to form one of the freshest electronic-pop groups to come out of Birmingham – Psalms.

The trio were united with an eclectic range of musical tastes; Ryan can't get enough of Major Lazer, classical pianist Sam is influenced by electronic artists like Aphex Twin, and singer Nicole takes inspiration from powerful vocalists Rihanna, Beyoncé and Patti Labelle.

Psalms gave us the honour of hosting their first ever live performance, and their debut track 'This Isn't Love' is going straight on our 2017 playlist – its fresh sound is perfect for any summer party or poolside tanning session!

With three new releases still to come this year, the gang are keeping busy and trying to get as much exposure as possible – and considering that Ryan, Nicole and Sam want to eventually perform at London's O2 Arena, an American festival and Glastonbury's iconic Pyramid Stage, they're going to have to put in some serious hard work!
