Who was this?

The other night I was at a concert (Union Transfer seeing MO) and in between the opener and the main act they were playing a song through the speakers that I'm trying hard to identify. I tried recording it on my phone, but it didn't pick it up because it was playing too low and the crowd talking drowned it out.
It was a really slow, mellow song. Just a female voice, not singing any words I don't think, sing-humming a high-ish melody to a simple, slow, prodding bass heavy beat in the background. (There may have been some other sounds but they were faint.) It sounded new-ish but I can't be sure. But it sounded really heavenly/cathartic/pretty.
Any idea who this could be or what song it is?
