Iceland has picked the band Hatari as its entry for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. The trio consists of best friends who studied together in art school – Klemens Hannigan, Matthías Tryggvi Haraldson, and Einar Stéfansson. Hatari’s participation Söngvakeppnin took some fans by surprise. As Icelandic publication Grapevine reported at the time, the trio claimed their career to be over and announced a farewell concert in December. But later they said that their goal to tackle capitalism was not achieved so they could not leave. “Our feelings are of overwhelming respect towards this project for which our nation has selected us. It brings us one step nearer to our plan, to destroy capitalism,” the band said as they were picked to represent Iceland in Eurovision with a song “Hatrið Mun Sigra”—meaning “Hate Will Prevail”. News of Hatari becoming Iceland’s Eurovision entry was largely met with enthusiasm on social media, where fans of the band had added the song title to their names to show their support.
