Crowded around a small table at the Tea Spot, the enthusiastic and young looking group Bearbabes answers May Young's questions about the band and their style. When asked how it felt to play in New York for the first time, the band's reaction was smiles and thumbs up all around. The band wasn't so much camera shy as at a loss for words at times. When Fei-Tsuei Luo, the band's cellist was asked why she came over from classical and seemed stumped giggling and asking for something a little easier to answer. All the of the band seemed in agreement that classical music was a major influence.
When asked what other music contributed to the band's sound, early blues and rock, as well as British bands like Radiohead and Suede. Drummer Meng-Chih Lu chimed in with The Stereophonics that received appreciative giggles the other band members. When asked who they would want to play with, the band was stumped, looking to each other as if the answer was on the tip of some other band mate's tongue. They were able to come up with several good choices though, including Wilco, Radiohead as well as masters such as BB King and Glenn Gould. Fei-Tsuei Luo had one somewhat unusual request in regards of collaboration, pointing to the orchestra of Broadway's Lion King as her choice. A choice that is definitely part of her quirky charm, it also adds to their allure which is barely definable as it is.
