The South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) was delighted to welcome South Australian pop duo Electric Fields to Adelaide Studios this week to rehearse for their upcoming performance at Eurovision in Malmö, Sweden.

The duo – comprising vocalist Zaachariaha Fielding and keyboardist and producer Michael Ross – will represent Australia at the international competition next month with their song One Milkali (One Blood), which incorporates Yankunytjatjara language and will be the first time a Eurovision song features Australian First Nations language.

Adelaide Studios’ 1000sqm Sound Stage 1 proved the perfect venue for Electric Fields’ rehearsal, with excellent acoustics and the large floor space allowing the band to map out the Eurovision stage footprint. The group shared a sneak peek on Instagram, showing Zaachariaha and Michael making the most of the expansive space available at Adelaide Studios.

Reflecting on what made Adelaide Studios the perfect place to rehearse their performance, Michael said: “We came to Adelaide Studios to rehearse One Milkali for our Eurovision performance because it’s a giant space that’s exactly what we needed – lots of room, and a very comfortable space to put our magical performance together.

“Honestly, I’m not sure there is another space quite like this to provide what we needed.”

The duo, along with their team of back up singers, were excited to add their autographs to the walls, joining the signatures of many cast and crew members who have used the space over the years, as well as legendary rock band The Rolling Stones who also rehearsed at Adelaide Studios when they toured Australia in 2014.

Zaachariaha said: “There’s some legends that have come through, so it was really nice to share the space with those guys and what happens here.”

When asked about their chances at Eurovision, Michael said: “We’re feeling really really good… That last performance we did just sort of felt like – OK, yep, we know how to do this.”

Zaachariaha said: “The next time we do this it will be Malmö. It’s all the elements coming together. And we’ll just have to wait and see what happens!”
