Owls of the Swamp is the atmospheric indie-folk project of Australian raised (now Iceland based) musician and songwriter, Pete Uhlenbruch.

Meteorite is the title of Owls of the Swamp's adventurous new EP, due for release on 4th November 2016 through Labelship records. Written in the aftermath of a transformative trip to the jungles of Peru, where Uhlenbruch worked with shamanic visionary plant medicine, the Meteorite EP offers deep personal reflections on impermanence, the journey of the soul, facing one's shadows and the cultivation of self-care and awareness.

Mixed by Stefan Orn Gunnlaugsson (Íkorni) and mastered by Adam Dempsey (Courtney Barnett, CW Stoneking), Owls of the Swamp's Meteorite EP heralds a bolder and more self-assured sound that sees Uhlenbruch venturing beyond his acoustic indie-folk background, incorporating dynamic vocal deliveries and expansive music production reminiscent of Sufjan Stevens, the Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev.
