She's just so refreshingy unique. But then again, she is from the UK, so it's to be expected.
I wouldn't even consider her music as pop (which is what she seems to be classified as), she crosses over so many genres. Rock, soul, electronica...I love the tribally feel of some her stuff too. Very cool.
