Being about 3 years since her debut album, Por Vida, Isolation has been very anticipated. In the making, there has been subtle hits like the gradual drops of singles: Tyrant, Neustro Planeta, and After the Storm. These are songs that will definitely be classics in the future. Uchis doesn’t “isolate” other genres. She brings a mixture of many influences to generate a solid sound that stands out. From Reggae to latina to even R&B, these influences, all together elevate her sultry, retro voice.
Colombian-born, Uchis does not neglect her latina roots. Instead, you hear these influences throughout the album. Seldomly, speaking spanish and also having a track exclusively in the language with Nuestro Planeta, it is easy to see how her roots transgress to the rest of the album with the strums of the guitar and the classic beats found in many latina songs.
Uchis first kicks off the album with a nostalgia to the beach and continues to imitate a tropical paradise throughout. With the calmness and sereneness of the beach in the background and her sultry voice over, the combination gives a wholistic balance to the album. With her unapologetic tone throughout, this stance gives a juxtaposition and rawness to her narration. Something that makes her relatable to her audience.

Uchis also blends other artists’ sounds. Featuring people like Steve Lacy and Jorja Smith, Uchis continues to reinvent a new sound for herself. Her ability to add another dimension to her voice imitates her overall persona and evolution.
In a recent interview, Uchis talks of her adjustment to finding comfortability in solitude. Being okay with being alone is a tool that is essential to everyone. With her accomplishment to finding it within herself speaks volumes in her music. No longer afraid, her vulnerability is reflected in Isolation and links to all of the songs to create a narration to her experiences.
Here’s the interview:
Kali Uchis does not disappoint in Isolation. She provides an enlightening perspective to her own experiences that demands attention. Please listen to this album. She truly deserves it all!
