about

Wildlight is the space between the notes, the earth’s undulating pulse, the modern echoes of ancient rhythms. It is a sound that will spark your body into motion and swing your soul into flight. An unlikely pairing of a folk songwriter and an electronic music composer has yielded a new sound; music that gracefully traverses human emotions, but can also jumpstart a party into a syncopated bounce.

While vocalist Ayla Nereo delicately crafts songs that climb and tumble through a landscape of crescendos and harmonies, seasoned composer David Sugalski (aka The Polish Ambassador) keeps the beats and bass rooted deep in the subatomic layers of the earth.

Wildlight is the first act featured on The Polish Ambassador’s imprint Jumpsuit Records. Look for this duo on tour this fall.

Track Name: Twirl Me
I saw a girl last night
she was standing in the light in a corner of the room
she was waiting for a hand
then a boy came over and he asked her to dance
all eyes stopped to watch them
they moved up and down with the waves of the song
their moves keepin time for the rhythm
then the girl looked at him and she knew what it was and she smiled as she said to him,

“please twirl me one more time, and don’t stop spinning me
please swirl me in your mind, so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon
spin spin with me...”

I heard a story bout a man
he came up with a plan for flying
he showed it to his wife
then he said, “now darlin’ why are you cryin’ so?”
and she whispered in his ear
“I’ve a fear you won’t come back down to the ground”
and he said, “I’ll always come back to you
just help me this once to get higher up” and he kissed her and he said,

“please twirl me one more time, and don’t stop spinning me
please swirl me in your mind, so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon”
and he was off and gone...

there once was a woman lying in bed
with her lover’s head upon her shoulder
she said, “my darlin’ you sound so faint
don’t tell me it’s time I just can’t take this”
and she told her, “please don’t worry dear
there’s nothing to fear in moving on
but there’s one thing I’d like to ask of you”
and she said, “just tell me darlin’ I’ll do anything, anything”
and she said,

“please twirl me one more time, and don’t stop spinning me
please swirl me in your mind, so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon”
and she was off and away...
Track Name: Conversations Between
Hers was a long, long-long way to go
mine was beside her, behind and alone
ours was as teardrop, wind into the bone
ours was a cyclone…

I gotta say...

Thank you sweet, I can hear you now, you can hear me now, now listen deep
Thank you deep, I can hear you now, You can hear me now, now listen sweet

Mine was a cavern, a crease beside the road
filled up with fossils, walker to his load
filled with a river, dried with a moan
while Hers was as thunder….

I gotta say...

Words I fly...
Breath as tide…

Thank you sweet, I can hear you now, you can hear me now listen deep… Thank you deep, you can hear me now, I can hear you , I can hear you now
Track Name: Rise
Tried to say what words can't speak
through eyes pressed tight, dawn heavy closin in on me
I cast it sideways, I cast it sideways
I cast this anchor deep it binds me to the night, every time when I
look at all the years that passed, and all the ones to be, and this that lies before us, right in front of you
Like siren's callin' me, like sirens callin' me back to the rocks where I's born

Every morning before the sun rose, I rose to catch the wheels from spinnin' my
mind crazy with it, full of pieces and needing peace but I can't find it, so
I make some rhymes of it, I take my time findin'
anything' I can breathe a bit of lightning, breathe a bit of life into empty pages
Every morning before the sun rose I rose to find you, still I rise to find you

Tried to turn my back, my thoughts
like rip tide quick your body's pullin' at me
Could I cast it sideways, could I cast it sideways
Even if my spoken broke to nothin’ still I'm left with a negative burned behind my eyes
And every year that passes, every one to come - this taste for the words that can tell of it all
Like siren's callin' me, like sirens callin', my back burden willingly worn

Every morning before the sun rose, I rose to catch the wheels from spinnin' my
mind crazy with it, full of pieces and needing peace but I can't find it, so
I make some rhymes of it, I take my time findin'
anything' I can breathe a bit of lightning, breathe a bit of life into empty pages
Every morning before the sun rose I rose to find you, still I rise to find you

still I rise, still I rise...
Track Name: Oh Love
Oh Love! Tearin' me apart from the inside out so I can see myself from the inside... Oh Love...
Oh Love! Tearin' you apart from the inside out so you can see yourself from the inside...

Might be causin' pain. Might be coming home. Might be sayin' this is all you asked for…

Oh Love! Tearin' me apart from the inside out so I can see myself from the inside... Oh Love...
Oh Love! Tearin' us apart from the inside out so we can see ourself from the inside...
Track Name: Dawn to Flight
Come, wake, like a blow of lightning falls like rain, as the dark calls your name
Come, face to face your fear, don't turn away as the dark calls your name
But here, like a drowning, like a knife… here in the changing of dawn to flight I go…
Is it my life then to be lost? Takin anything be caught… Is it a choosing to be love? Callin down these highest walls.. I wouldn't mind it to be light, showin all of me inside… Is it my life then to be found? Watch as seeking turn to sound…
Deep roots, recall your stance -- you, born of sand, holds you in hand
Trembling as a shoot 'gainst mountain - climb! with all your heart, to your name, called through dark…
Here is the path and you are blind… Here is the changing of dawn to flight, I go…
Is it my life then to be lost? Taking anything be bought? Is it a chosen to be love? Callin down these highest walls.. I wouldn't mind it to be light, shown all of me inside… Is it my life then to be found? Watch as seeking turn to sound…
Track Name: Save My Mind for Later
Fall away again...

Will it move you, will it...

And I will raise these hands to reachin
showin up, shadows lead to sun
and I could save my mind for later
spinnin out, shoutin to drop your guard

I will need this sight to see it
lookin out, callin for a home
and we will take the pieces given
open up, let it all unfold

Will it move you, will it...

Fall away again...

You could lean this life to listen
catchin up, tendin to what’s called
and you could turn your back to leavin
given out, droppin to let what holds you

But we will need this breath to breathe it
movin out, speakin as it is heard
and we could face the madness maker
tearin out, let off all this load

And I will need this sight to see it
lookin out, callin for a home
and we will take the pieces given
open up, let it all unfold

Spinnin out, shoutin to drop your, spinnin out, shoutin to drop your, spinnin out, shoutin to drop your guard...

You could lean this life to listen
catchin up, tendin to what’s called
and you could turn your back to leavin
given out, droppin to let what holds you
Fall away again...

And we will raise these hands to reachin
showin up, shadows lead to sun
and I could save my mind for later
spinnin out, shoutin to drop your guard

and I could save my mind for later....

Will it move you, will it...
Track Name: Live Inside a Dream
My sheets were cold tonight, had to leave them for a dying fire, burn up time for dreams
Lovely soul, you’ve gone to sleep, silence empty house I cannot breathe, you’ve said too many nice things

Can I keep spinning to your turns
can I just fall back in your open arms
and when you ask, I’ll always sing you a song
bout a girl who tried to live inside a dream...

Looking up at the ceiling they listened and there wasn’t time to catch the feet kicked out from under me
Then I caught your eyes, please can I keep them with me for a future time, they’ll help me when I try to fly

Can I keep spinning to your turns
can I just fall back in your open arms
and when you ask, I’ll always sing you a song
bout a girl who tried to live inside a dream...

Give me a book to read, talk me your mind and let me see what’s crashing round inside of you
Fire hasn’t gone out yet, so can we climb the fire escape, we’ll see just as far as we want to get

Can I keep spinning to your turns
can I just fall back in your open arms
and when you ask, I’ll always sing you a song
bout a girl who tried to live inside a dream…
