Hatari is an Icelandic music group, famous for their BDSM-inspired image, anti-capitalist message and participating in the Eurovision. Hatari is Icelandic for "haters". Their music is hard to categorize: they use electronic instruments accompanied by growls and clean vocals and occasionaly use distorted guitars.
Hatari consists of vocalists Klemens Hannigan, who sings clean vocals, his cousin Matthías Haraldsson, who sings growling vocals, drummer and music producer Einar Stefánsson and dancers Ástrós Guðjónsdóttir, Sólbjört Sigurðardóttir and Sigurður Andrean Sigurgeirsson. They are signed to the label Svikamylla ehf. and are sponsored by SodaDream (both of these were made by Hatari, just for show). Hatari like to pull stunts including but not limited to announcing their disbandment due to not accomplishing their primary objective (dismantling capitalism), challenging the Israeli prime minister to a wrestling match and creating a news site dedicated only to them and their collaborators, https://icelandmusicnews.com/

I'm sure she was just joking.
Anyway, if anyone else is interested in learning the Icelandic language thanks to Icelandic music, I got a book by P.J.T. Glendening called Icelandic, from the Teach Yourself Books series. (you can find it on library genesis)>>133718
I also really love Spillingardans, also I've never watched the klamstrakur video because it's age restricted and I'm too lazy to sign in kek

Honestly bit surprised on seeing a thread on a Icelandic band on here. I wonder if the OP is the farmer who a while back posted on wanting to meet Icelandic men. Anyway Matthías and Kristlín just broke up which is a bit of shame, they looked cute together.
Hatari is a singular word so in English it means hater instead of haters

That's too bad. Thank you for correcting the translation, I remembered it wrong and didn't google. I'm not the person who posted about that but I remember her haha I hope she sees this thread
Anyway my favorite part of Hatari is how they have different characters. Matthías is removed from the happening, he is an outside character judging and pointing out the mistakes in society, his lyrics never say "I did this and that", on the other hand Klemens is part of the society and he laments on how he is affected by it, his lyrics often say "I did this, I feel this".
Also I learned how to type í,ó,á etc., you type ´ before the letter kek I'm stupid why didn't I notice it sooner
Nice thread! For a Eurovision song, I think Hatrið mun sigra really holds its own and I'll still listen to it from time to time. 'Hlauptu' is my favourite of theirs.
Is there still a Hatari fandom/community? I remember on tumblr/twitter/discord there was a sizeable group of fans after Eurovision but I don't come across them as much anymore.

While I'm personally not a fan of their music. I found another Icelandic person who is a fan that is translating interviews, contexts and etc. This might be of value for youhttps://hatari-translations.tumblr.com/
Also for anons that would like to read more about the band here is a archive with all of their articles from RÚV https://www.ruv.is/tag/hatari
While it is all in Icelandic but that okay you'll just suffer through it or google translate it or check the link above as she has translated e.g. Klemens furniture interview
Pic related for attention and reminder to myself that I will never be able to buy furniture in this style without going completely broke…
