Owls of the Swamp is the alias of Australian singer-songwriter Pete Uhlenbruch, and you need only to listen to the first few seconds of “Shapeshifter” from the forthcoming ATLAS to realize the name is aptly chosen. The song is quiet and pensive, and almost eerily still. Uhlenbruch’s voice is pillow-soft, beckoning the titular shapeshifter — a lover? a spirit? — to come to him and state its needs. It’s a quiet, moving song, full of sorrow and longing.
