"I found myself in Amsterdam the other day and I put A-Ha's first record on," Martin said at the time. "I just remembered how much I loved it. It's incredible songwriting. Everyone asks what inspired us, what we've been trying to steal from and what we listened to as we were growing up -- the first band I ever loved was A-Ha."
