Icelandic art conquers the United States. Even better, the Icelandic art made by an alternative electronic pop/rock band Major Pink conquers the United States. The band’s video for song ´Hope´ received an award for ´Best Editing: Music Video´ at the WideScreen Film & Music Video Festival in Miami, Florida, earlier this year. Congratulations!

The project kicked off in 2012 first as a duo consisting of Gunnar Ingi and Daníel Guðnason. After their participation in Músíktilraunir they teamed up with famous Barði Jóhannsson (Bang Gang, Starwalker) who produced their first single in August 2014, called ´Hope´, which made the charts right away.
