awesome new band

anonymous asked:

(Do you mind me asking something random? If not feel free to ignore.) What kind of music do you like to write to? I'm in need of some new background to my writing...hopefully to get out of a bit of a funk. Thanks!


I would love to answer this question! And I feel your pain. I often find myself creating new playlists when my used ones are feeling too monotonous. But I do have some tried-and-true bands that really get my creative juices flowing. And they vary depending on the mood or genre of what I’m writing. So, I hope these help you as they’ve helped me. Or, at the very least, maybe you’ll discover a new awesome band. ;D My taste might be weird, but these are what spark my creative mind.

☯️ likes/dislikes Otayuri<3

Yuri likes: cats, OTABEK, FOOD, winning, looking like a punk in awesome fashion, discovering new bands through his boyfriend, traveling, lazy mornings off from practice, buying bath bombs at Lush, dancing, his phone, creamy liqueurs, the colour purple. 

Yuri dislikes: being told what to do (outside of the bedroom), people stealing his spotlight, losing, people hitting on his boyfriend, gross PDA (that does not involve him and his boyfriend), fan girls screaming at him.

Otabek likes: riding his motorcycle, preferably to somewhere with a nice view, YURI, the colour green, reading novels, traveling, coffee, spinning records and just getting lost in the music, music in general, autumn, watching movies, being a little bit mysterious. 

Otabek dislikes: press conferences, feeling he isn’t enough, feeling stuck in one place yet being homesick, drunk frat boys, Passoa liqueur, disappointing remakes to perfectly fine classics, when people don’t offer their seats to the elderly on public transport.
