Default Similiar artists

Wondering if you guys could help me find some similar artist maybe I haven't heard of.

I'm looking for bands that sound like The Hives, Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, Modest Mouse that sort of thing.

Appreciate it.

If you like Arcade Fire listen to Polyphonic Spree.
There's a ton of bands that sound like Arctic Monkeys and none of them are worthwhile.
Modest Mouse are good but its hard to compare them.

Built to Spill sounds like Modest Mouse. Check out Pixies too.
