SA Duo Electric Fields To Represent Australia At Eurovision 2024

The artist who will champion Australia at the 68th Eurovision Song Contest has been officially revealed. SBS have announced South Australian duo Electric Fields will be heading Malmö, Sweden this May to rep for the green and gold.

 “We are buzzed with euphoria at our chance to share this music with the world,” the pair said in a press statement. “Our music comes from the deepest place in both of us and Eurovision is the most exciting opportunity to bring together our cultures and share the joy of our global connection.”

Electric Fields – ‘One Milkali (One Blood)’

Electric Fields will also make history, becoming the first ever two-piece chosen to rep Australia at Eurovision. Made up of vocalist Zaachariaha Fielding and producer/keyboardist Michael Ross, the pair combine traditional living culture with music that ranges from soulful pop to epic-scale electronica.

Their official Eurovision 2024 song ‘One Milkali (One Blood)’, which you can stream above, also incorporates Yankunytjatjara, an Aboriginal language of the Anangu peoples.

Eurovision fans will remember Electric Fields from SBS’s 2019 national selection show, Eurovision – Australia Decides, where they came a close runner-up to Kate Miller-Heidke.

Last year, Perth prog metal act Voyager did us proud at the international song contest, making it to the final and coming in ninth place overall.

This year’s sequin-studded festivities will run from Tuesday, 7th May through til Saturday, 11th May 2024 (CEST) in the Swedish city of Malmö.

SBS’s Eurovision TV coverage will once again be in the capable hands of music buff Myf Warhurst and comedian Joel Creasey, with official details of the station’s 2024 broadcast to be announced soon.
