On the 5th day of Christmas, Brumotions gave you…
The Secrets interview part 2!
Sunday saw part ONE of our interview with soon to be pop sensations – The Secrets. Our interview with the lads was so long we had to split this into two parts.
This interview includes even more laughs and fan questions.
If you had to describe each other in one word what would it be?
Luke: I have many words to describe Lewis, I’d say the main one is Lunatic he’s absolutely crazy, he’s hyper all the time, and he’s just a general lunatic I’d like to get a word which incorporates his generosity and niceness in there as well but he is an absolute lunatic like he’ll go around Asda just screaming… he’ll probably be playing Bogies with himself.
Luke: Like that.
Lewis: So mine for Josh, can we have a word that has like a – in the middle?
I suppose we will let you off with that…
Luke: That’s against the rules.
Lewis: Pretty – Boy, I think that’s my word for Josh.
Lewis: Not that I fancy Josh or anything but he’s just so perfect, like he’ll get up in the morning, he’ll literally look at his hair and spray it with hairspray quick and BAM he’s done and he just looks good straight away and he’s like so photogenic… so that’s my word for Josh.
Josh: Cheers Mate.
I feel a bit of a Bromance there…
Lewis: Oh yeah, I’ve loved Josh ever since day one, I’m holding his leg right now.
Josh: Ahh this is awkward… Luke, I’m not sure I’ll probably just say he’s just cool, just the way he dresses, the way he acts… he’s pretty cool to be fair.
Luke: I was expecting a word beginning with S and ending in T… well thank you Josh.
If you were to take the Queen on a date where would you take her and why?
Lewis: A chippy in Bolton, It’s one of the cheapest chippys that I’ve ever seen, you can get a burger, chips AND a can of coke for £2.
Josh: So you’d take the queen there?
Lewis: I think that’s where I’d take the queen and I’d be like check what we’re living – Poverty that’s where it’s at.
Luke: I went on a date once at the Tamworth snow dome, I would definitely recommend tobogganing.
Lewis: The Queen tobogganing? She’d fall apart.
Luke: She would absolutely love it and there’s a Starbucks there afterwards, so I’d buy her a ginger spiced Latté so that would be a perfect date for me and the Queen.
We have a couple of questions from your fans, so the first one is from @Amieeyoung1996 and she wants to know what’s the best thing about being in a band?
Lewis: I’m going to say the interaction with the fans, I mean everything’s great about being in a band, the playing side of its amazing and actually learning to practise writing your own music is all amazing but up until starting The Secrets we never actually had dedicated loyal fans and you’ve got to make friendships with your fans, it’s really amazing that we can go busking and we can say what time we are going and a load of our fans turn up and we can hang out with them, it’s just amazing.
Luke: Yeah I’d agree with that.
Lewis: it’s nothing that we have ever had before and it’s such a crazy concept for us and we absolutely love it.
@OfMiceandMcvey asked who is your biggest inspiration?
Luke: Mine would definitely be Ed Sheeran because I feel like the way he acts about everything, his personality comes across really well in everything he does, he seems like a really genuine guy and he does music for the music, he doesn’t do it for the money or the attention he does it cause he really loves it and I’d like to imitate that in a way like I’d love to be him.
Josh: I’d probably say Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake to be honest, ever since I was little I listened to them all the time and just the way they are, the music they produce, the music they write it’s just amazing.
Lewis: A lot of artists have always inspired me but I think the main person would have to be my Dad cause the first band I was in, was when I was 11 but before that my whole life he’s always been in bands, so the only things I have had around me has been bands so when I was younger I was going to gigs and seeing the fun they had and how happy it made everyone by playing music I mean if you’re playing in a pub to a load of friends it’s not like you’re doing it for the money you’re doing it purely for the love of the music and that’s what’s sort of rubbed off on me.
So, @GiraffeVamps wants to know, how did you all meet?
Lewis: Well, me and Luke were in a band together called FYI and that started about 4 or 5 years ago, we met from being in the gig scene, everyone always gigged together in different bands.
Luke: Actually, Lewis and I were both in bands and the singer of Lewis’ band was ill and he asked me to come in and sing for them cause he’d seen me at other gigs and we went on to that other band, after all that, that band broke up we all went our separate ways and Josh messaged me on Facebook asking me to start a band and then we met up for a coffee and really got on and then I got in Lewis and it was love ever since.
@UnicornsAreFxb asked, who picked the name The Secrets.
Lewis: It was actually a joint decision; we had like 100’s of names, it was a choice between The Secrets and a few others, The Craze so we could call our fans The Crazies but I think the best one that really stuck out was obviously The Secrets.
Luke: At first we weren’t really sure on a name and then after a month or so, the fans just loved it so it was a good decision in the end.
@WallisChloe53 said if you weren’t in the band what would you be doing?
Luke: I’d probably still be doing music, before the band I was doing my own stuff on YouTube saying that though I was working at McDonalds so hopefully I won’t have to go back to working at McDonalds.
Lewis: Yeah I’d definitely still be doing music, I was working for Domino’s before the band, even though I was working like 40 hours a week I was still busking in the day times trying to just do the music it’s always been a passion.
Josh: Well before the band I was working with my Dad doing Fire Protection, but I mean, with music, it’s just what I want to do forever, pretty much it’s just great, I just love it.
Luke: What would you do if the band like ended, what would happen?
Josh: It’s not going to end.
Luke: Yeah I know that but let’s say it hypothetically it got blew up… yeah if the band got blew up.
Josh: Yeah, just continue with music.
@FxckTheSecrets wants to know what colour socks you’re wearing?
Lewis: Right now I am wearing, black and blue succulent fluffy socks, which are unbelievably warm… ah Luke’s are well good… go on Luke.
Luke: I have Mr Men socks – Mr Tickle is now on my foot, he’s not tickling them but he’s on my foot.
Josh: I’ve got black, blue and orange socks on and I’ve just found a penny inside them.
Luke: They are my socks… you thief… yeah Josh is wearing my socks, just so you know.
As you guys are called The Secrets, are there are secrets that you can tell us?
Lewis: uhm we don’t really have any secrets because me, Luke and Josh all live together but if we did have secrets we wouldn’t be able to co-exist as we have done.
Luke: I think she means do we have any secrets to tell them?
Exactly, we don’t live with you guys…
Luke: One little secret is that Lewis takes like three hours in the shower.
Lewis: That’s not a secret, that’s for anyone to find out.
Luke: Josh is a very good cook; he makes spaghetti Bolognaise with red wine in it.
Lewis: oh Yeah, Josh has an unbelievable Germ phobia which is good in a way in a sense that he is obviously clean but it’s so annoying when it’s like Dude can I have a bit of your drink, I’m really thirsty and he’s like uhmmm well no then you have to find a glass or something and you have to pour it into that, it’s just really annoying, he’s really really anal about it.
Luke: I also fancy Josh’s mum.
Josh: WHATTT Dude.
Luke: I’d like to say I’m joking but I’m not.
If you could be any animal what would you be and why?
Luke: I’d personally say, a cat because they get what they want, when they want, they get fussed over all day, they get fed, if they are still hungry they go out and just kill something and eat it, it’s just an all round chilled out animal.
Lewis: I’d like to be a cat – but a big cat like a lion or something like that, I’d like to be the dominant man of the pride like grrr if anyone steps near my family I’m gonna kill you, I’m very protective so I think that portrays my animal world.
Josh: I’d like to be a Monkey but I have no idea why they are just cool, I just love Monkeys.
Luke: So you can be in the new One Direction video.
So there you have it!
The Secrets are definitely a band to look our for in 2015!
We wish them all the best and can’t wait to hear their new material.
