Discuss music in any form from rock bands to Britney Spears' latest VMA performance. It's all good!

Does anyone know any good bands that have both girl and boy vocals? I love the way their voices contrast.
I know about Alphabeat, Shiny Toy Guns, Los Campesinos!, and Peter, Bjorn and John, and Matt Kim.

I agree that the combo can be really amazing. A number of my favorite songs are by male-female duos, but most of them are single-song cooperations rather than by a group. Most of the groups I can think of off the top of my head are outside the rock/pop genre.
A few rock/pop ones that I can think of: No Doubt and Peter, Paul, and Mary.
Sugarland is a female-male country duo (with some crossover), with Jennifer Nettles providing most of the vocals. On most of the songs, the male (Kristian someone-or-other) functions mainly as back-up, but on other songs, he has a more prominent role.
There are a number of Irish traditional bands (or more contemporary bands with Irish trad roots) that have both male and female vocalists. One that I can think of off the top of my head are Brigid's Cross... I know there are several others, but their names are escaping me.
Wow, this is tougher than I thought.
