Is it possible for a song to be in a key between c and c#?

I can't figure out the notes in this song because they aren't the same pitch as the piano? I'm really confused! It sounds like some of the parts hit around c and c#, but its not because when I try to play along it sounds completely different. Anyways, do you think that Nicholas Hooper tuned his string section to be inbetween 2 notes? what is that called?

    I don't know what it's called, but you're right, it's between C and C#. I'd have to guess he did it deliberately, but I have no idea why. Maybe he hates people with perfect pitch and wants to drive them crazy.
