Eclectic, immersive and stupidly addictive, Mint Dolphin's

much-hyped debut offers listeners a genre-bending escape from mainstream pop drudgery. Behind a steady wave of harmonious hooks, retro new wave/alternative nuances, and charismatic delivery, MD's High Tide EP lassos the freewheeling spirit of coastal California sound and brings it forward with thoroughly modern style and production. Recording for Mint Dolphin's debut EP, High Tide, began in late 2019 at Hidden City Studios in Santa Barbara. Intended to be released in the summer of 2020, the album was put on hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. During the mandatory quarantine period, Eric wrote and released "Social Distance Dance," which earned immediate and rapturous attention in the local music scene.  The 1980's new wave inspired single was featured on KETY News Channel 3, selected as 92.9 KJEE's "Localize it" Pick of the Week and led to a write up in the Santa Barbara Independent, which described Mint Dolphin as, "Packing fun vibes with a wistful '80s sound, Mint Dolphin is a fresh entry to the Santa Barbara music scene, having just started in 2020."
