Electronic pop duo Electric Fields will represent Australia at the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest, launching their new song, One Milkali (One Blood).

Taking to Instagram, the pair – vocalist Zaachariaha Fielding and keyboardist/producer Michael Ross – wrote in a caption alongside a post shared today, “We've got some BIG news! Our new song 'One Milkali (One Blood)' is out now, AND we're so excited to announce we'll be taking this song to Eurovision 2024 in Sweden!”

In a joint statement, they told the ABC, “We are buzzed with euphoria at our chance to share this music with the world. 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.”

One Milkali (One Blood) is a song performed in Yankunytjatjara language in tribute to Fielding’s connection to his Anangu community. You can watch the music video below.

Australia’s host broadcaster for Eurovision, SBS, this year decided on Electric Fields via internal selection – like they did with Voyager in 2023.

Electric Fields have been favourites to take the Eurovision stage since coming second to Kate Miller-Heidke in the 2019 Australia Decides competition. However, as Director of Blink TV and Australia’s Creative Director for Malmö Paul Clarke notes, the internal selection committee has kept a keen eye on Electric Fields ever since.

In a statement to TV Tonight, Clarke said, “Since hearing their brilliant song 2000 And Whatever, we have always had our eye on Electric Fields for Eurovision. They came close to winning E-AD back then, but they are far stronger a few years down the track. Electric Fields will bring something never seen before on the Eurovision stage. They will be deadly in Malmö!”

Emily Griggs, the Head of Entertainment at SBS, added, “Electric Fields are set to captivate Europe with their genre-defying music. By blending catchy beats with a beautiful sentiment, they have crafted an uplifting dance anthem, One Milkali (One Blood). With their unparalleled passion and infectious energy, SBS is proud to have Electric Fields amplify Australian voices and leave audiences yearning for more.”

Like last year’s contestant for Cyprus, Australian singer Andrew Lambrou, another Aussie will represent the nation this year – 17-year-old Sydney-based singer Silia Kapsis with her song Liar.

Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey will return for on-ground hosting duties at the 68th Eurovision Song Contest, with the competition taking place from Wednesday, 8 until Sunday, 12 May, on SBS.
