about

In the face of disease, death and exploding double D’s, finally – after 6 long years Macombee & the Absolute Truth’s album No Man’s Land is here.


Cinematic arrangements wrap themselves around Sarah Macombee's exquisite voice. Drawing you into a world you want to visit again and again. Her strikingly original songs are equal parts movie, art, and fly on the wall. A world that reveals itself a little more with each visit. Stories that you realise you know intimately. If you haven't lived through the exact experience yourself you'll know someone who has. Through her uncompromising viewfinder, she lays out the pain and the beauty of what it is to be human. Add to that the beautiful harmonies provided by her daughter Poppy, the technical wizardry of producer Louis Bernstone along with the part drama part documentary visual segues and you have the ingredients of something rare and incredible.
