Sons & Daughters and The Duke Spirit are probably the best 2 I can think of.

Or there's Stereolab if you want to go old school

The Joy Formidable*
Long Blondes
The Go! Team


* amazing, amazing band. Seriously check them out.

Also, if you end up wanting to check out female fronted bands in general..

Raveonettes
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Sonic Youth (not always female fronted, but a fair few of the songs have Kim's vocals, some of which being their best songs)
Rilo Kiley
The Breeders
Metric

are all brilliant.

Yes, please.

Scars - "Your Attention Please" (Author! Author!, 1981)


The Sun Ra Arkestra - "Nuclear War" (Nuclear War, 1982)


Tokyo Police Club - "Citizens of Tomorrow" (A Lesson in Crime, 2006)


The Thermals - "Here's Your Future" (The Body, the Blood, the Machine, 2006)


Autolux - "Sugarless" (Future Perfect, 2004) (Not entirely sure how apocalyptic it actually is but it sounds like Western civilization crumbling)

You should use the original "Life Is A Highway" by Tom Cochrane it's much better than the karaoke version you have listed.

Awesome, thanks!

sweet, The Joy Formidable are amazing and so is Metric.
The others didn't really do much for me.

Thanks!

There's a Welsh band I'm quite fond of called The Joy Formidable who are fronted by the lovely Rhydian Dafydd. Their music is far more based around '90's indie rock, yet taking some of the poppy aspects of '00's.



edit: I didn't see that downwardspiral posted before me.
