Hatari is a political, multimedia project that aims to take the lid off the relentless, unfolding scam that is everyday life. They explain: "We cannot change things, but we can unveil the anomie of neoliberal society, the pointlessness of every minute spent in the futile race, and the low price for which man now sells himself ever more blatantly. We can scream at our own impotence, scream at our collective sleepwalk through routine, and implore our audience to unite, shoulder to shoulder, and dance. Dance, basically, or die. Hatari represent a considered reflection on hope and hopelessness, power and repression, of image, individualism, despotism, exposing the contradictions that arise when everyone is embedded within the same system and struggling to fight against it. We are Hatari. We are all Hatari."
Hatari was founded in Reykjavík, Iceland in 2015 by Klemens Hannigan and Matthías Tryggvi Haraldsson with masked drummer Einar Hrafn Stefánsson joining shortly after. Joining them on the Eurovision Song Contest stage to dismantle capitalism are dancers/choreographers Sólbjört Sigurðardóttir, Andrean Sigurgeirsson, and Ástrós Guðjónsdóttir.
Also on their way to Tel Aviv are graphic designer Ingi Kristján Sigurmarsson, video artist Baldvin Vernharðsson and costume designer duo Karen Briem and Andri Hrafn Unnarsson, all of whom have already established themselves as an integral part of Hatari's multimedia performances. Hatari's participation in the Eurovision Song Contest is the group's first bold step in their global plan to orchestrate the inevitable downfall of capitalism.
The Hatari team brings together diverse corners of Iceland’s musical and artistic world. Matthías Tryggvi Haraldsson is a journalist and writer. He graduated from the Iceland Academy of the Arts as a theatre and performance artist, and has been highly commended as a playwright. Klemens Hannigan is a musician, cabinetmaker, and designer, currently studying fine arts at the Icelandic Academy of Arts. Einar Hrafn Stefánsson is a musician, producer, and sound engineer who has played with a variety of Icelandic bands in the past. Sólbjört, Andrean, and Ástrós have all studied contemporary dance at the Icelandic Academy of Arts and have been very successful on the Icelandic dance scene. Hatari invite you all to join them on their nihilistic journey to the centre of the earth.

Lyrics of Hatrið mun sigra

Icelandic (Original)

Svallið var hömlulaustÞynnkan er endalausLífið er tilgangslaustTómið heimtir alla
Hatrið mun sigraGleðin tekur endaEnda er hún blekkingSvikul tálsýn
Allt sem ég sáRunnu niður tárAllt sem ég gafEitt sinn gafÉg gaf þér allt
Alhliða blekkingarEinhliða refsingarAuðtrúa aumingjarFlóttinn tekur endaTómið heimtir alla
Hatrið mun sigraEvrópa hrynjaVefur lygaRísið úr öskunniSameinuð sem eitt
Allt sem ég sáRunnu niður tárAllt sem ég gafEitt sinn gafÉg gaf þér allt
Allt sem ég sáRunnu niður tárAllt sem ég gafEitt sinn gafÉg gaf þér allt
Hatrið mun sigraÁstin deyjaHatrið mun sigraGleðin tekur endaEnda er hún blekkingSvikul tálsýn
Hatrið mun sigra

English

Debauchery unconstrainedHangover uncontainedLife’s purposeless confusionThe void will swallow all
Hate will prevailEvery joy derailJust treacherous illusionFraud, futility
All that I sawTears ran rawAll that I gaveThat I once gaveI gave you all
Universal obfuscationUnilateral execrationFrom gullible delusionEscape will be curtailedThe void will swallow all
Hate will prevailAnd Europe’s heart impaleBurn off its web of liesNow from the conflagrationRise in unity
All that I sawTears ran rawAll that I gaveThat I once gaveI gave you all
I gave you allHate will prevailLove to no availI gave you allHate will prevailEvery joy derailI gave you allJust treacherous illusionFraud, futilityHate will prevail
