Post-rock bands with gentle FEMALE vocals?

Lately I have been getting into post-rock, it seems to be such a broad genre with beautiful calming songs as well as wall-of-noise ambient metal stuff. However, one type of it has caught my attention:
(this beautiful song)

This song is really calm, but the vocals are what I really love. The vocalist girl sounds so gentle, so happy, and yet so tired... I can imagine her laying in my room and singing while I am floating in another dimension...

I would be thankful to anyone who gives me names of bands who play this type of music (the fragile female vocal is a must ).

Thanks in advance!

I thoroughly enjoyed that song you posted. Thanks!

This might not be exactly what you're looking for, but this is the first band I thought of. They're a band worth sharing, so I thought I would!

Rainer Maria might be interesting for you.

Some Alison's Halo might be cool too.

And Mazzy Star might be a popular one.

Maybe Russian Red and Joanna Newsom for an even less post-rocky thing.

Not much post rock here and there's probably something obvious I'm missing but hope this helps some

Sigur Ros are the best band to go to for post rock + vocals though.

More electronica than post-rock, but it has the dreamy music and gentle female vocal requirement.

EMA, or Erika M Anderson. Period. She is a doll and her music is gorgeous.
Waxahatchee is also great.
