TOGETHER IN ELECTRIC FIELDS

Proudly Indigenous, boldly queer, fabulously flamboyant, Electric Fields are living by their band motto: “bypass the barriers”. From Eurovision (almost) to Mardi Gras, their unique musical style is earning them global fans.
Electric Fields are Zaachariaha Fielding and Michael Ross.

We’ve always just been our authentic selves. We’ve never hidden or toned down and people like us to be bold.

ZAACHARIAHA Fielding and Michael Ross candidly describe themselves as “two feminine brothers”. As bandmates in Electric Fields, they are one of the most exciting music acts to have emerged in recent years, trailblazing new sounds and a fresh, queer-positive attitude. Their music fuses electronica and dance with the influence of Zaachariaha’s Indigenous heritage, along with pop, jazz and a sprinkling of the spirit of Nina Simone.

Their biggest moment so far has been SBS’s Australia Decides competition for this year’s Eurovision, which saw them parlay critical and popular acclaim into major international attention.

Are Electric Fields the next big thing? They might just be that already.

DNA: Hi guys. Please give us a brief history of how you came to be making beautiful music together.

Michael: We first met about nine years ago when we were lending our music skills to someone else’s songs. That ended, and about three years ago Zaachariaha called me and asked if we could start working again. So we did and when we wrote music together, a deep energy emerged and we found ourselves bursting with euphoria. That’s when we decided to join forces and send our music out as a duo.

You’ve both done reality TV talent shows – do they help you find an audience or are they a hindrance?

Michael: A bit of both probably. We both had a reality TV moment separately before Electric Fields was born. I had a great experience on The X-Factor and got to perform for Kylie and Dannii Minogue in NYC – homo bucket list tick. [Laughs] Zaachariaha had much more exposure because he went all the way to the grand final on The Voice with the duo ZK.
