- "Don't Say a Word", the lead track on Halcyon is easily her best song, showing off the best use of her voice to create an eerie atmosphere.
- "Lights" was her international Breakthrough Hit for a reason, containing one of the best synth riffs in synthpop and amazing vocals.
- "Stay Awake" is a very intense, if not hopeful piece about the will to survive intense circumstances.
- "Guns and Horses", even with its nonsensical lyrics, for its amazing blend of folk, EDM, and pop.
