Owls Of The Swamp Release Video For “The Hypnotist” – Across The Ocean

Owls Of The Swamp Release Video For “The Hypnotist”

After receiving critical acclaim around the world for his album ATLAS, atmospheric indie-folk singer-songwriter, Owls of the Swamp (AKA Pete Uhlenbruch) has launched a video for “The Hypnotist”.


His album ATLAS was mixed in Reykjavik by Sturla Mio Thorisson (Damien Rice, Markéta Irglová, Owen Pallett) and features guest performances from Markéta Irglová (The Swell Season), Ryan Karazija (Low Roar), Myrra Rós, Svavar Knútur and Phia. Recorded on his mobile studio across Germany, Iceland and the UK, ATLAS heralds a new voice for Owls of The Swamp — sweeping synthesizers, dynamic textures and rhythmic programming alongside his characteristic finger-picking and earthy vocals.

His debut album Smoky Bay (2007) was an ambitious concept album that sought to capture the strange coincidences, connections and charismatic characters that shaped his experience living in Iceland. Uhlenbruch’s deeply embedded Wanderlust has also led him to perform extensively throughout Australia, Germany, Iceland, the UK, Poland and the Czech Republic. His arresting yet personal live performances have led to tours with artists such as Žamboi (CZ), Myrra Rós (IS) and Svavar Knútur (IS) as well as supports for Machine Translations (AU), Old Man River (AU), the Paradise Motel (AU) and Jens Lekman (SE).

“The maturity displayed by Owls Of The Swamp is a joy, and the accolades thrown his way to this point have been well deserved, and there are plenty more headed his way.”
