Secrets: The Moffatts Reunion Q&A

The Moffats are back! After 18 years, the brothers Moffatt have released new music, and pop fans in Canada and all over the world are rejoicing.

Secrets, the new single from the celebrated pop stars of the late 90s and early 2000s, acts as the reintroduction of Bob, Clint, Dave, and Scott to the musical world. The sound is updated from their earlier work, but this feels like The Moffatts. The voices of the four brothers still work together seamlessly, and there is little doubt that they belong together in the studio making music.

Note: The Moffatts haven’t been entirely out of the music world with Bob and Clint working together on numerous projects, including country act Endless Summer, and Scott producing multiple artists including breakout star Luke Combs.

We caught up with The Moffatts to ask about the new song, what’s next, who inspires them right now, and more. Hit play on the official Secrets lyric video now and enjoy the Q&A!

The Moffatts Q&A

Q: Secrets (the single) feels like it fits both in the current landscape of pop, and like it belongs in The Moffatts’ library – what was it like to find that balance, or did it just happen when the process got started?

The Moffats: The balance really came naturally. When we create music, it’s difficult not to create something that sounds like the Moffatts. We are also music lovers who appreciate a lot of what’s going on in music today. It’s authentically where we are in music right now, it was a very organic process, recording and writing for this EP.

Q: Were there any current artists that you took inspiration from for the Secrets EP?

The Moffats: Artists like Ed Sheeran and Niall Horan who have a simplicity to their music, almost reminiscent of the music from the 90’s but still current in its execution. We love melodic music and songs that are easy to sing along to, and those guys are doing a great job making quality music that will be appreciated for generations to come. We felt if the Moffatts had continued making music, our music would have been more inline to what Ed and Niall are doing today.

Q: You’ve had diehard fans all over the world that haven’t given up hope that a reunion would happen – how much of the decision to make this EP was about them?

The Moffats: The whole reason why we came together to record a new EP was because we wanted to give something back to our fans who never stopped supporting us after all these years. We were all doing our own things, not fully aware that support was even still there. But since the four of us have regrouped, the response has been amazing and it just keeps growing.

Q: The first time you stepped into the studio all together for Secrets, were there any rushes of memories from back in the day?

The Moffats: For sure! It was very nostalgic, looking over at my brothers, them looking back at me, thinking… this is really happening. The process of making of this album was a bit different from our previous records though, as we were the sole producers and engineers. So even though there were moments of nostalgia, it still very much felt like a new experience.

Q: If you could single out one thing… what do you wish you had known then that you know now about making music?

The Moffats: Nothing really… everything is a process and there has been much learning from our first records till now, and hopefully that learning never ends.

Q: How excited are you, as a band, to reintroduce yourselves to fans all over the world with new music, and maybe introduce your older music to new fans at the same time?

The Moffats: It’s very exciting! We are really proud of this new EP and can’t wait for people to have the chance to hear it. If that success introduces new fans to our older music, hey, that’s awesome! Long live the 90’s!

Q: Last one, what can you tell us about what comes next?! (we know this is tough because of plans and release dates that need to be kept secret) Music Video for Secrets? EP release date? Tour?

The Moffats: Nothing at the moment is set in stone, from the release of the EP to any touring, it’s all still up in the air. The best way to keep tabs on release dates and tour dates is to follow us on our social media accounts like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter. We will let everyone know when things will be happening through those official accounts. But hopefully it will be soon!

Like they said… you can keep up with The Moffatts at these fine online locations…
