Bunny Five Coat / Press

“Bunny Five Coat thrives on simplicity — this power-chord-friendly punk band chugs along without trying to tear down barriers, and there's nothing wrong with that. Most tracks on Anymore provide thrills . . . Anymore hits the mark more often than not.”

“Vocals sound like Bad Religion (but female), and music isn't far off (I'm talking thirty years ago Bad Religion, but slower). Melodic punk with a notably gritty guitar and a few exceptionally catchy bits from a Pittsburgh band that was active in the early 00's and recently rejoined the action.”

Robert - Maximum Rocknroll

“Bunny Five Coat brings a straightforward approach — fist-pumping rock with swirling background choruses and scratchy-throated screams . . . Bunny Five Coat serves as the wake-up call. These are ladies (and one dude) with an ax to grind.The best of the lot on this short and more-acidic-than-sweet EP is “Old Town.””

““Anymore” brings punk rock back to the essentials. This is a raw sound, completely unpolished and all the more beautiful for it. Opting for simplicity works wonders for them as the pared down sound shows them at their absolute best. Not a moment on “Anymore” is wasted as they distill their work into a total rush. With all this noise, distortion, disorientation and speed, they manage to show how punk with pop structures can be good. With “Anymore” Bunny Five Coat effortlessly combines punk rocks’s history from its origins of Riot Grrrl to the present. “Anymore” is a perfect punk rock confection.”

“The Pittsburgh-based group released their first CD, Negative Attention, in March. It’s angry at times, but more fun than the scowling woman on the cover would lead you to think. And like any good punk recording, it makes you want to sing along with the more defiant lyrics: “I don’t know what to do with myself or with the rest of my life/ one thing I know that’s damn sure is/ I’ll never be your wife.” Preach it, sisters.”

K. Giammarise - Pittsburgh City Paper

“Pretty impressive disc. This all female band has been playing since October of 2001. It hasn’t even been a year and they already have a full length! Now that’s what I like! Action = Action!!!! Bunny Five Coat sound reminds me first and foremost of a tougher, more crunch guitar heavy Ramones sound with song structuring reminding me a lot of something Joey Ramone would write. On two tracks in particular; "Smells" and my pick of the disc, "Thang", Bunny Five Coat bring to mind Liliput/Kleenex!!! Now that’s even more impressive!!!! A while back I reviewed a band from Virginia called, Girlush Figure whose disc, Target You is probably still available, well, if you had liked what you heard THERE, then please turn HERE to Bunny Five Coat; You will not be disappointed!”

“It only takes one look at the sneering chick on the album cover to know that the Bunny Five Coat are a force to be reckoned with. This 4-piece Pittsburgh, PA band is gutsy, honest and inspiring. Erica's raw and throaty vocals carry listeners through 11 tracks of catchy, old school style punk rock. These are the kind of pumped-up anthems that you'll want to rock out to again and again. For those of you who are sick of punked-up versions of mushy love songs, don't worry about finding any here. With lyrics about personal independence, the single life, manufactured music, and self-acceptance; Bunny Five Coat is anything but love-lorn. . . . this band has more attitude than most others can muster up even on their angriest days.”

“No frills punk from a bunch of grrly grrrls. What I can tell you is that their album "Beauty Myth" is a collection of songs that is a definite throw back to 80's punk with a tip of the hat to L7. These 9 songs are straight ahead punk, meaning that they aren't breaking any new ground, but it sure can be a lot of fun. .”

“AC/DC + Bad Religion + Bikini Kill = Bunny Five Coat. And really, that's about it. Like most punk-rock bands, BFC thrives on its own musical simplicity -- four chords and a primitive drumbeat -- combined with lyrics that deceive with anger and humor, but are really pretty smart. It's the first and last tracks on Beauty Myth, however, that really declare BFC's mission. The opening title track proves to be the album's best song: Railing on Sex in the City, glossy mags and models with "vacant stares and fake tits," "Beauty Myth" is a no-holds-barred "fuck you" to the anti-woman fashion industry; no poetic disguise here, the point's loud and clear. Put that together with "Crowd Crusher," a circle-pit anthem about how great Bunny Five Coat is, and you've got a band that's serious as all hell about its politics and its fun.”
