So Far Away (single edit) by Owls of the Swamp

  Following his fifth European tour, Melbourne-based international dream-folk troubadour Pete Uhlenbruch (aka Owls of the Swamp) is set to release his second full-length album, Go with River in mid 2011. The songs were recorded during a five-week solitary stint in a beach shack in Inverloch, Victoria, infusing the album with a captivating, spellbinding pace.

Fleshing out his reflections on solitude and nature, Uhlenbruch evoked guest performances from a worldwide cast of musicians before enlisting the masterful ears of J. Walker (from Machine Translations) and Andy Stewart who mixed the album in Gippsland., and Adam Dempsey who mastered the album in Melbourne.

So Far Away is the first mesmerising single from the forthcoming album, and was written on tour last year on the shores of a quiet lake in North Germany on a borrowed guitar. The single features the enchanting guest vocals of Icelandic songwriter Myrra Ros, and J. Walker on cello.

The single launch takes place on Friday the 18th March at Bar 303 (Northcote, Melbourne) with support from Ainslie Wills and Ma Petite. Tickets available at door $10 with a free limited edition So Far Away single with bonus b-side.

The single is now available for exclusive download from Triple J Unearthed.
