In 2018, Ellis released her debut EP, The Fuzz. The release arrived following several months of excitement building behind Ellis, who, after generating buzz in her local scene on the back of opening stints with the likes of Soccer Mommy, Gabby's World, Chastity, Palehound, and Free Cake For Every Creature, garnered international acclaim for her first two independently released singles, earning comparisons to Mazzy Star, Alvvays and Slowdive from outlets like Pitchfork, Noisey and Stereogum, who marked her out as one of "a new generation of exciting songwriters."

The six-track release includes her three early singles and presents an uncommonly fully-realized aesthetic to match the strength of Siggelkow's songwriting. Built from simple instrumentation, but deftly arranged to lend a grandeur and devastating scale to Siggelkow's skillfully rendered laments, the release is a resounding statement from a young artist who is poised for a reception that equals the scope of her remarkable gifts.

2019 saw her release the new single, Something Blue. She is currently working on a new album that is due out in 2020.
