Review Fix Exclusive: The Blue Dolphins Talk 'Walking in the Sun' EP and More

Review Fix chats with The Blue Dolphins: Alfonso Rodenas and Victoria Scott who discuss their new EP, “Walking in the Sun,” as well as their influences and goals for the future. Inspired by acts the likes of Carole King, Crosby Stills, Nash and Young, and Paul Simon, their sound is rich in nostalgia but trendy enough to grace the radio soon enough.

Review Fix: What did you learn from the first album and how did it affect this EP?

Alfonso Rodenas: We realized that we have something that people can relate to, a sort of a naked honesty, a sincere voice without premeditation. People seemed to dig that and the universal appeal of the songs. We have tried to preserve that in this fully produced recording.

Review Fix: What musicians influence you guys the most?

Victoria Scott: Songwriters Carole King, Crosby Stills, Nash and Young, Paul Simon, The Doors, Everything but theGirl. We make our own sound out of these and the melting of our cultural heritages (UK and Spain), and the musical decades we have lived through. I listened to a lot of Prince, Nina Simone, Astrid Gilberto, Acid Jazz,The Doors and Bob Dylan.

Rodenas: We listen to all types of music, but there is always this unstoppable attraction to the roots and the sound of the bands that established the principles of modern popular music in the late sixties till the mid seventies.

Review Fix: How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard you before?

Rodenas: Our sound is a rich and complex mixture of roots, eclectic and singer song/writerpop rock oriented. I have tons of influences from the last 40 years of music history, it’s very timeless and far away from calculated authenticity with very powerful, clean and brilliant sonic aesthetics.

Scott and two-time Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer Alfonso G. Rodenas.

VS - Victoria Scott
AR - Alfonso G.Rodenas


1. You guys are from sunny California so then your name, The Blue Dolphins must refer to the ocean life that is California or you have a thing for Dolphins?

AR: You are right! The name reflects the goodness and the laid back charm of the way of life in Southern California but also our affinity with this beautiful ocean creature that for us represents all that is good and kind in creation.

VS: The name came up before we had formed the band. We really liked the sound of it but we didn't realize its significance till we started living and creating with it.

2. So does this mean that your band mascot is the obvious a Dolphin? "The Blue Dolphin"?

AR: Yes, why not? The dolphins represent for us mother Earth, our connection with her. It is so joyful and exciting for everybody who’s watching when they jump out of the water and you see them surfing the waves. It is a Universal positive feeling.

VS: LOL… we’ll stay away from the literal mascot as a visual for a logo, but the dolphins are definitely the totem animal of the band.
