Hatari: The Icelandic band bringing BDSM to Eurovision

Iceland's entry to Eurovision 2019 is anti-capitalist, techno performance, BDSM (bondage and discipline, sadism and masochism) band Hatari.

Every year Eurovision is held in the country which won the previous competition, and in 2018 Israeli entrant Netta and her song Toy won.

Speaking to Radio 1 Newsbeat before leaving for Tel Aviv, Hatari said the competition was founded in the spirit of "peace and unity", and that they're "conflicted" about performing in Israel due to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
