What are some 'indie' pop or rock artists that use a violin or full orchestra in their songs?
Some good examples would be Florence + The Machine, Cloud Cult, Ra Ra Riot, Kissy Sell Out (on one track, but it was amazing), Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s, Marina & The Diamonds, The Royal We, etc…
A strong drumbeat or fairly fast-paced songs would definitely be a plus.
