Erika Kulnys Finds Herself Swimming With Dolphins

The singer-songwriter’s immersive single takes you on a journey of self-discovery.


Erika Kulnys goes Swimming With Dolphins and winds up on a journey of self-discovery in her latest single — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Co-written with Alan Roy Scott (Celine Dion, Shakira), the globe-trotting singer-songwriter’s track beckons you to embark on a profound exploration of self-liberation. Featuring uplifting lyrics, Swimming With Dolphins encourages you to immerse yourself in the uncharted depths of your essence, navigating the limitless expanse of personal empowerment and freedom.

Crafted on the serene landscapes of the Irish island Inisheer, the number was inspired by the sight of a wild dolphin swimming playfully with people. As Kulnys asserts, this song encapsulates freedom from our self-imposed perceptions, and from our painful mortal entanglements:

“I swam in the ocean thinking, ‘Is this is how I die?’
In the freezing water, something caught my eye
I knew I should be afraid but somehow I felt free
Now your love is leading me to where I’m meant to be
We’ll go swimming with dolphins.”

“This song is about being free, from our conceptions about ourselves, our conceptions of others, and our attachments to suffering,” she says. “It is about following the wild dolphins who show us how to laugh and love and sing in our power.”

The track will appear on her upcoming album Stand Together, a musical mosaic featuring Spanish gems Fantasma (Ghost) and Alcanzando La Rosa (Reaching For The Rose, written with Gareth Dunlop). Enriching the experience, Cuban musicians infuse the upcoming Spanish tracks with passion and rhythm, adding depth to Erika’s musical narrative.

The album’s debut single My Choice stands as a vocal protest amid the discourse on abortion and bodily autonomy in the U.S. The second single Stand Together took form through a cross-continental journey, beginning in Cuba, finding its completion in Germany and being produced in the U.S. and Canada. Swimming With Dolphins adds another layer; beyond advocating for the liberating stance of indifference to external opinions, the song exudes romance, affirming Erika’s journey to love — a narrative that poignantly underscores the notion that sometimes love finds us when we least expect it.
