I never thought I would be one of these people, who starts a help me find a song thread, but this is driving me batty.

The song:

It sounds like a indie new wave revival band. The male singer is saying something about reaction, retraction, and at one point a female singer starts singing words in French.

It's very Blondie sounding, along the lines of the Live it up song. I heard it on a commercial rock station so I'm assuming it's a popular.

Any help would be appreciated, cheers.
