Niblett’s music is frequently minimalist in style, many of her songs consisting merely of vocals accompanied by either drums, piano or electric guitar. Niblett’s unorthodox musical arrangements have been noted by critics, particularly her sparse instrumentation and dramatic shifts in tempos.

In addition to songwriting and music, Niblett is also an astrologer.
