There is an interesting story behind bridges and their second album ‘Våkenatt’. They were a Norweigan psychedelic-rock band touring, recording and building a fanbase between 1978-1981 that featured what would become two of the most successful pop stars in the world... a-ha’s Paul Waaktaar-Savoy and Magne Furuholmen.
During the short-lived life of the band, that also featured Viggo Bondi and Øystein Jevanord, they released their first album ‘Fakkeltog’ in 1980, it was a low key release for a new band, nothing unusual, but the record went on to receive more attention after the band’s demise and a-ha turned into global pop icons. It became an expensive must-have record for the a-ha completist. There was always rumour and talk of an unreleased second album for the band, but nothing ever came to light… until an a-ha fan convention in Oslo at the end of April 2016.
It’s an album many lifelong a-ha fans have seen as the missing link between the two bands and one that is now available exclusively as a 1LP vinyl and 1CD.
