Vive Les Cônes
Vive Les Cônes are a french electronic music duo based in Oporto, Portugal. A blast of 1980’s Casios, fueling a dancing machine that never stops, kissing moments of pop culture every now and then. Their boiling live performances never let anybody indiferent, and have become a trademark in Oporto’s underground scene.
“The bewigged pair start playing synths, sounding like a weird John Shuttleworth take on house music.” Luke Turner, The Quietus.
