Shout Out Louds
Their videos are kinda lame and they tend to wear poorly matching uniforms when performing live, but they're from Sweden so that pretty much guarantees a catchy pop tune or two these days. Here's The Cure-esque:
MP3 Tonight I have to Leave it
Loch Lomond (from Portland, not Scotland)
"Tic" kinda propels along like a sea shanty... the video integrates live action with animation but lacks anything all that interesting going on... "bearing down"...

Los Campesinos (from Wales, not someplace where they use "Los" a lot)
Where would this song be without that female-vocal sung chorus?... Not here anyways... The animated video shows, I think, that disco beats war everytime... cool!

"But it sounded like he’d broken a limb each and every time he pushed the key down or in"
