Need help IDing a band

I heard music that I really liked at a pub the other day, and am hoping someone can help me identify it. I have very little information but am hoping the fact that it seemed I was listening to tracks on an album might help. Genre is alternative-ish. (notmany)More details inside.

The sound of the band was somewhat similar to Nirvana (I'm an electronica fan, so this association may be completely lame, best I can think of) The main identifying factor was that the first two songs I heard made heavy, heavy usage of (beautiful) string arrangements, and the songs were also incredibly morose. I strained to hear a snippet of lyrics that I could google when I got home, but the pub was a bit loud and the singer had a sort of low voice, so that I couldn't make anything out.
After two tracks of this (definitely by the same band), the next track was largely a somewhat grating, scratchy interference type sound. It was definitely a song of some sort, though not terribly enjoyable (wasn't equipment malfunction). It went on for a bit and they switched it off. I don't know for sure that this was from the same album, but they proceeded to play a patsy cline cd straight through, so I imagine that they maybe had one cd in at a time, and all three tracks I heard were from the same album.
Seems rather of hopeless as I type this, but does anyone have any idea who this might have been?
