Who will rock me?

There's a relatively recent(?) alt-rock song I've heard on the radio a couple of times in the last six months which sounds like I imagine Queen might sound if they were just starting out today. What/who is it?

It's not Mika (though he does have a Mercury thing going on). This was definitely alt-rock, but with a slightly poppy operatic tone which, combined with the singer's falsetto, made it sound something like a punked-up redux of the Queen song Killer Queen.
I've heard it on Canadian radio, if that makes a difference. The answer may be obvious, but the only time I hear those stations is on patios or in people's cars.
