"This is a six-song EP of guitar pop from a gang of Canucks. They come on like SLANT 6 mixed with SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES: spooky guitar lines and echo-laden vocals from all four members. It's got a definite SoCal vibe too... some of these songs could fit right in on the SUBURBIA soundtrack! Pop and punk, yet not pop punk, know what I mean? My only complaint is that most of the songs are a bit too long for my reduced attention span." - AM, MaximumRockNRoll, March

"Vancouver’s Betty Kracker play crunchy, delirious punk infused with hectic melodies and sludgy downbeats. “Driven” delivers the pompous raunchiness that brings to mind the best of defunct cult heroes Betty Ford, while “Cool” has the glitter punk sweetness that could have rivaled the B Girls. The alternating vocals of guitarist Nevada Santiago and drummer Shannon Hallett create a contrast that sums up Betty Kracker perfectly: gravel and spit combined with spunky sweetness. When singing solo, Hallett’s vocals exude a tenacity that brings to mind the shadowy lushness of Siouxsie Sioux and Johnette Napolitano, an attribute that becomes increasingly clear on “Incognito.” Working with layers of riveting guitar that slices through the plodding bass lines, which reach dangerously high speeds throughout, Easy Bay Coven is a flourishing EP that is full of the contorted contradictions and turbulent risks that Betty Kracker pull off flawlessly." - Liz Worth, Exclaim Magazine, 02/2007
