help find a song

Looking for a song for our Wedding! I have tried the hum to identify sites, and googled like crazy with no luck. The song is new (2011) and "car commercial popular". It has no lyrics and sounds kind of like something Sigur Ros would do. I know this offers nothing, but it is like, "Ahhhh, ummmmm, aaaaaaa uuuuu". It heard it on the radio, an "alternative" station. Its starts slow and builds (all songs I guess), and is quite emotional. Men are doing the vocals, and my last little evidence is that on the movie, If a Tree Falls, toward the middle they play a short segment of a song that sounds identical to the band in question but not the song. I check every song on the credits but it is definitely not there. Thanks all!

Are you sure it's new? Might it be this (as featured here)?

I was positive that it would be "Ice Cream" by Battles (video pretty NSFW) until you said "emotional." Still going to throw it out there.

You said you've tried hum to identify sites - if you can hum the tune, can you record it and post it here?

Probably not it, but I just have to throw it out there: Intro by The XX?

It fits in that it has no lyrics, is "car commercical popular" (it's used in LOTS of media), would play on "alternative" radio and has "aaaaa uuuuu" stuff going on with male vocals. However, it's also got female vocals and is not that Sigur Ros-y.
