Wild Light is an American four-piece indie rock band from New Hampshire, United States, composed of multi-instrumentalists/vocalists Tim Kyle and Seth Pitman, guitarist/vocalist Jordan Alexander, and drummer Seth Kasper. The band formed in 2005 and released its first full-length album, Adult Nights, in March 2009. Kyle is a former member of the Canadian band, Arcade Fire.[1]

Biography[edit]

Wild Light began when Tim and Jordan began making music together in elementary school. In high school, they joined with Seth Pitman and Seth Kasper to form a band. Jordan attended Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, where he shared a room with Win Butler - future lead singer of Arcade Fire. Tim met Win through Jordan, and after high school Tim moved to Montreal to start the first incarnation of what would become Arcade Fire with Win and Josh Deu, the artist behind the Adult Nights cover. Tim left the group after a year, and in 2005 Kasper, Seth, Jordan and Tim reunited to form Wild Light.[2] Through their relationship with Arcade Fire, the two bands toured extensively throughout Europe in late 2007.[3] In the summer of 2008, Wild Light traveled to Los Angeles and entered the recording studio to work with producer Rob Schnapf on their debut album, Adult Nights (StarTime International), which was released on March 3, 2009.[3]
