Le Bon is singled out by critics for her "beautiful, haunting voice" She described writing and performing music as "important to me, it's just an expression and sometimes it's not necessary to moralise it" Le Bon claimed that "early experiences with a string of pet deaths had a profound lasting effect on me" and informed her initial self-admitted "abnormal fixation with death" She describes her lyric writing as "foraging for words and then everything falls into place"
