Meernaa, the Oakland quartet fronted by Carly Bond, announced their debut full-length Heart Hunger today and premiered its stunning first single “Better Part.” Meernaa’s songs are full of mystery and soul, buoyed by Bond’s velvety vocals and warm synth sounds. Bond describes the ultra-romantic “Better Part” as “an extreme 80’s themed mega love song,” adding, “It’s the first real love song I’ve ever written and truly meant with my whole heart. I wrote it a few months prior to getting married to my now forever dude and fellow bandmate (Rob Shelton). It’s about fully realized love, the freedom that comes with absence of doubt, the acceptance and support of the changing human beings you are/will become and the open invitation to always come back to the love you share when, sometimes, you forget about it.”
Heart Hunger is out June 14 on Native Cat Recordings and is available for pre-order HERE. Meernaa is touring in support of John Vanderslice this month; all dates are below.
