PSYCHOLOGY is the brand new British alt-pop creation of British singer/songwriter Colin Rivera. A project that explores an unparalleled sound, combining sophisticated indie rock with raw lyrical emotion and soaring pop melodies, Psychology resonates with fans of The 1975, HAIM and Sigur Rós, whilst delivering a rare sense of uniqueness.
Psychology’s electrifying live show was formed over time as Rivera toured for years under various monikers, sharing the stage with artists such as Mark Ronson, Sam Smith, Chvrches, Kasabian, The Kooks, Tom Jones, Ellie Goulding, Clean Bandit, George Ezra, Hozier, The Script, James Bay, Calvin Harris, Lindsey Sterling, HelloGoodbye, Hollywood Ending, Paradise Fears, The Rocket Summer, Hoobastank, He Is We, and The Ataris. His live show has filled venues across the US and UK, including the iconic Hard Rock Café (San Diego), Barfly (London), Dublin Castle (London), and V Festival (Hylands Park, England).
Rivera spent the last few years in London, developing what would become Psychology's signature sound. Collaborations with British producer/drummer Paul Mortimore (whose credits include Carl Barât of The Libertines, and Daryl Bamonte of Depeché Mode/The Cure) as well as American musicians Josh Gishi and Mitch Cizmas, relentless touring, performing for festival crowds, and bursting onto BBC Radio’s airwaves, all helped prepare Rivera for the 2018 launch of PSYCHOLOGY.
