Electric Fields is a potent new music bringing together the brilliance and creativity of music producer and composer Michael Ross, with the mesmerising sensitivity of Zaachariaha Fielding – whose rare and beautiful voice has been described as ‘taking soul to the stratosphere’. These two feminine brothers are creating a striking and haunting merging of living traditional culture with electronic music. Co-creating music and delivering a memorable live performance – Electric Fields bring moments of breathtaking beauty and power to the stage. Often featuring Zaachariaha’s traditional language of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara people, Electric Fields music ranges from soulful pop to epic-scale electronic works, through to intensely intimate story-songs.
Within a year of their debut EP release, Electric Fields received the APRA Emily Burrows Award, performed in China and Scotland by invitation, played for the massive New Year’s Eve event at Elder Park to an audience of over 40,000, and were booked to play WOMADelaide 2017. They hit No1 on Radio Adelaide’s Most Played, went on high rotation on Fresh FM, and are receiving airplay on Triple J. Taking out Best New Talent for the National Indigenous Music Awards 2017 (NIMA), Electric Fields are also recipients of the much-coveted Stigwood Fellowship for 2017/2018. Currently touring Australia, they have recently returned from a hugely successful performance for the Matasora World Music Festival in Indonesia.
Electric Fields provided the entire music content for the stunning show Nurlanthi as a part of Spirit Festival 2016, and their track Shade Away was chosen as the hero music for Adelaide Fashion Festival 2016 – performed live for the opening, and used as the promotional music for the Adelaide Fashion Festival’s television campaign. Featured on Qantas In-Flight Entertainment, Shade Away has also been included on the latest compilation release NIMA Presents: The Sound of Indigenous Australia – Now and Before – by Warner Music.
They have just played Big Sound and the Tivoli in Brisbane, and bookings take them up to June 2018 – to include the National Centre for Indigenous Excellence (NCIE) Sydney, the upcoming Commonwealth Games, MONA FOMA, and an international festival in Poland. Electric Fields will be opening the national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Visual Arts Festival, Tarnanthi – with their track Pukulpa being used for Tarnanthi’s television campaign.
