1. “Sentimental” – Winner

The K-Pop band, Winner, formed in 2014, and Sentimental is one of their most recent songs in their album 2016 Winner Exit Tour In Seoul Live CD.  “I like the feel of [the song], it’s really mellow and the lyrics are kind of sad, but the melody is very pleasing.”

3. “Blood” – Day6

Day6 debuted with it’s mini-album, The Day, which includes, “Congratulations”, another one of Elsheikh’s favorites.  Once tickets were on sale for their first concert, they sold out in five minutes. “I really like the voices of the artists. They’re one of my top groups I like to listen to,” Elsheikh commented. Her friend, Olivia Manaligod ‘18, got her into K-Pop last year, and since, she has enjoyed the music and videos that come with the culture, she added.

4. “Undercover Martyn”- Two Door Cinema

Indie pop and rock, such as Mumford and Sons and Vance Joy, is another genre Elsheikh likes. Two Door Cinema Club is an Irish Indie rock band which consists of three members, and has released three albums over the years. Their song, “I Can Talk”, was used in MTV’s Teen Wolf, and a few of their other songs have been used in films. “I guess that their music keeps a really good balance between being calming and being entertaining, in my opinion,” Elsheikh said.
