Conclusion: Ellie is probably the first artist I've listened to, to positively resemble Bjork's beautiful voice. Last person to win the Brit's Critic award was Florence & the Machine and we know how much good that did for her... I expect relatively the same amount of footway... Bjork dipped in UK greatness, what more can you ask for? See her live while her tickets are affordable! :)
