We were growing and when you grow, the music also changes. You’re more open-minded.”

The band consumed equal parts Jamaican music, sugary pop and underground Norwegian rock records – the album title a nod to both the year of the members’ birth and 1980s Norwegian New Wave group Program 81 – but there’s one band that unfairly invites most of the comparisons. “Everyone compares us to The Slits, but I think that’s mostly because we’re both girl bands,” says Dah...
