Pål Waaktaar and Magne Furuholmen’s first group before the formation of a-ha was called Bridges.
They released a self-financed LP on the record company Våkenatt in Norway only called “Fakkeltog” (Torch-light procession). 1000 copies were made, but very few of them sold.
The music is heavily influenced and inspired by The Doors.
This record is the most sought-after record among a-ha fans and you must expect to pay an awful lot of money to get your hands on a copy of this record. …

The album was produced by Svein Erichsen, mixed by Svein Erichsen and Tore Aarnes. It features Pål Waaktaar on guitar and vocals, Magne Furuholmen on synthesizers, Øystein Jevanord on drums and percussion and Viggo Bondi on bass guitar.

The second is an Austin, Texas based band consisting of Ben Clancey, Kayla Kleepak. Produced by Charlie Goodson (co-founder of American Mid-Fi Records) and Matt Squires (Founder and currently of Electric Toy Danger).

    Hey garfieldsam and thesky_7, the Seattle band isn't called Bridges anymore. They're called By Sunlight, and they tour every couple of months. Trust me, I'm the bass player. Thanks for saying we're good. Come see us play in April.

    I wish this was the band from Seattle that never plays called Bridges which is somehow related to An Angle. Super super good.

    I saw them in Birmingham when they opened for The Bangles. I was hooked!
