“Open Heart” is the single off Zara McFarlane’s new album, If You Knew Her. She’s the newest artist to join Brownswood Recordings, founded by famed global DJ and music connoisseur Gilles Peterson. McFarlance’s emotional vocals are comparable to Nina Simone. Her original compositions are conscious stabs at something way under the skin. Shorty goes in.
