So what if the whole globe is in a lockdown, music seems to be the ony thing that can’t be detained and builds bridges among people from different continents and parts of the world. KEiiNO meet Electric Fields in a collaboration that brings a fresh new song titled “Would I Lie” .
Just some months ago the Norwegian ESC 2019 representatives had announced a tour around Down Under, rewarding the fans for the teleovoting score at Eurovision 2019. On the other hand the Australian national final 2019 runner ups, Electric Fields, had their debut album underway. As both acts aim through their music to showcase idigenous cultural elements, this collaboration was a matter of time.
Michael & Zaachariah aka Electric Fields stated:
We love this song and loved working with KEiiNO. Creating music together was a beautiful, free-flowing experience, with our shared respect for our mother planet being reflected in the lyrics.
The new song is written by : Alexandra Rotan, Zaachariaha Fielding, Tom Hugo, Michael Ross, Fred Buljo, Alexander Olsson and Rüdiger Schramm while behind the production are R. Schramm, Tom Hugo and Michael Ross.
The new song festures sounds with the House and EDM elements with Electric Fields bring along their part of light in harmony with Alexandra’s vocals and Fred’s Joik showcasing a cultural combination. Notable how Tom does a Sami rap in the middle of the piece.
And while the beat literally bring us on the dance floor the lyrics maintain their part of glory connecting us with the current circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic and deliver a powerful earth message. The song descibes the relationship between mother nature and himanity outlining how many things this planet can give to humans although they don’t make use of them with repsect and thinking that there are no consequences to this wayof thinking. Nature answers back when treated without repsect!
