Colombian-American singer Kali Uchis has been hovering outside the mainstream for the past several years, garnering comparisons to Amy Winehouse for her smoky voice and clever articulation of heavy themes. On her debut studio album, Isolation, Uchis proves she’s a one-of-a-kind powerhouse with all sorts of range. At 15 tracks and 46 minutes, Isolation is exactly what an album should be, and with it Uchis brings back the often undervalued art of album sequencing.
Uchis builds off a classic foundation of soul, R&B, funk, and blues, bursting outward in dozens of innovative contemporary directions. On Isolation, she never sounds trapped in another era; she sounds free and inventive. And with nary a dud to be found among its 15 tracks, Isolation deserves a spot in the dance pop and neo-soul pantheons.
