The news of Australia’s participation in the 68th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest has been long-awaited. This delay stemmed from the conclusion of the initial agreement between the EBU and the Australian broadcaster SBS last year. This led to speculation about whether Australia would withdraw from the competition altogether. However, there appears to be strong interest from both parties, ensuring Australia’s continued participation in the upcoming years.

Similar to last year, Australia opted for an internal selection process. Previously, a grand national final was typically held, often in Gold Coast, Queensland. However, last year saw a departure from this tradition as an internal selection was made, with the group Voyager from Western Australia chosen. Interestingly, Voyager had participated in the national final the year before. Their impressive 9th place finish demonstrated that a national final isn’t always essential to achieve a strong result.

SBS has made history by selecting an Australian duo, “Electric Fields,” hailing from South Australia, for the first time ever. Their song, “One Mikali (One Blood),” has just been revealed, featuring lyrics in both English and the Aboriginal language of the Anangu people. Notably, Electric Fields previously participated in the Australian national final in 2019, achieving an impressive second place.

Electric Fields said: “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 Mikali (One Blood)” is a refreshing and catchy tune that seamlessly blends electronic music with the authentic sound of the original didgeridoo.
