What is this song?

What is this song: slow, dreamy synth song with programmed drum beats that played, in the last year or so, over a commercial that I believe featured a beach and was perhaps on MTV?

I heard what I assume some more of the album in a restaurant recently, and the other songs featured very 80's, dreamy synths. Unfortunately when I asked who it was, the waiter gave me the wrong name.

Several tracks from the most recent M83 album Hurry Up, We're Dreaming have been licensed. This one may be the one you're thinking of; there's a version in an ad I've seen without the vocal.

Aphex Twin?

Hot damn! It turned out to be Washed Out's Feel It All Around, which some quick and dirty searching tells me is used in Portlandia. That must have been where I heard it. Thanks so much for the lead, PercussivePaul.
