Amor Electro is a Portuguese pop band formed in Lisboa in 2010. The group consists of Marisa Liz (vocalist), Tiago Pais Dias (guitar and multi-instrumentalist), Ricardo Vasconcelos (keyboards) and Rui Rechena (bass). (On live concerts they have Lito Pedreira as drums player.)

They blend pop music (with some electronic elements) with Portuguese traditional music, using some typical instruments like the accordion and Portuguese guitar. They also revisit themes from the 1980s and the 1990s Portuguese pop/rock, playing versions of songs by Sétima Legião, GNR, Ornatos Violeta and other bands, besides their own original songs.

They were nominated for the MTV Europe Music Award for Best Portuguese Act at the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards.[1]
