Area man seeks more music. Much more.

So, lately I've been obsessed with the song "We would be so happy if ...
," by Bristol-based band Thought Forms
. [Alternate link.]
There's something about the combination of soaring female vocals, heavy guitars, space, ambience, dynamics, and a fierce melodic sensibility that draws me back to this track, repeatedly.
I'm thinking particularly of where the track goes between 1.45-3.30.
So, where else can I go to scratch this itch? Imagine that I missed out on a lot of '80s-'90s gothy, 4AD-style music (which I dismissed as being too slow and a bit fey) and know practically nothing of Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, etc. What would you recommend for someone looking to find more music like the linked track and explore similar territory in other bands' back catalogues? Thanks!
