Review

On her two previous albums, 2011's Until Tomorrow and 2013's If You Knew Her, Zara McFarlane was happy to plough a fairly traditional furrow, delivering songs that joined the dots between jazz and modern soul. On Arise, she confidently breaks those shackles, instead serving up at set that looks to Rotary Connection, Sun Ra, traditional African music, loved-up reggae and even doo-wop for inspiration. While jazz and soul remain at the centre of McFarlane's approach, this new widescreen vision only enhances her music. Put simply, Arise is the sort of album you'd expect from a top-notch artist with decades in the game behind her, rather than someone who is still earning her stripes. In other words, it's a brilliant breakout album.
