Help me identify an indie rock/pop song with two female vocalists.

Heard the song in a restaurant and liked it, but don't have a copy of Shazam. Here's what I could hear / learned:
- The band sounded like it had drums, keyboard, bass, and guitar. There was a lead female vocalist with a high voice who occasionally dueted with another female vocalist.
- Seemed to be in 4/4, with a final drum beat on the third beat (though I could wrong.) An "1/8-th note, 1/8-th note, rest, 1/4-note, rest" sequence.
- On what seemed to be the chorus, you got two electric bass notes, followed by a slightly sustained "waah" electric guitar note, where the "waah" changed every measure. bum-bum-waah, bum-bum-waah, etc.
- The song seemed to have a long run-time, or to at least break away from the bum-bum-waah structure for a notable bridge.
- The restaurant was getting its music from Pandora; the mix generally favored modern, Pitchfork-indie artists who were similarly soft. According to my waiter, he'd heard the song in some commercials, and -while he didn't know what it was- he considered it kind of ubiquitous. (Of course, working in the restaurant might have biased his ears.)
