Throughout So Far So Good
’s 11 tracks, Bond smoothly maneuvers her deft vocals among the sleek shapes of chilled funk, inviting R&B, and folk/pop innovations. Timeless with unexpected turns, Bond’s spacious songs flow with the analog certainty of pristine guitar, wizardly synths, and dance-bating bass and percussion.
Meernaa’s previously released singles “Another Dimension” and “On My Line '' introduce a celestial and soulful album. The weather of these songs is varied, the poetry shifting its winds from tender playfulness to desire. Amelia Maher
of The Line of Best Fit
called Bond’s imagination “as intriguing as it is beguiling and mysterious.” Meernaa’s So Far So Good travels perfectly with a glistening night out or a drive to a secret hideaway.
