Modern songs w/ violin

I'm looking for some modern songs with violin in them. Any genre is fine, no classical music though. Not that I dont like it just not what im looking for. This is the song thats got me wanting to hear more violin. If anyone has any suggestions I'd really appreciate it.

@tanner_f, Sigur Ros uses a lot of violin in their music.  The singer also likes to play a guitar like a violin which makes for some interesting sounds.

And I can't stop posting Andrew Bird. I didn't even realize he'd released a great album this year.

If you don't mind gypsy punk Gogol Bordel has some. Emilie Autumn, and The Head and the Heart are pretty good too.

Thanks for all the recommendations dude, im loving all of these songs!

I don't think i've ever heard gypsy punk before, i'll have to give them a listen.

Good riddance by green day.

also, if you like electro pop music lindsay stirling is a modern violin artist.

In fact, something really cool is very difficult to find right now. Few people make remixes in this style, and now almost no one releases such music. As a violinist, it really saddens me to realize this. I often listen to various soundtracks from films performed on the violin or covers of people on YouTube. I would also like to thank the people who have shared the playlists in this thread. Thank you so much, it will definitely brighten up my evening and add to the collection of my favorite songs. I recently bought a new violin from https://www.learnviolinlessons.net/shop/category/violin/ ​​and I think I will even try some of these songs on my new violin!

I think the violin sounds great in this track by the psychedelic/space rock band Øresund Space Collective, from their Kybalion album (released in 2018):
