Listen Hard is the second in a run of seven-inch EPs from Faux Ferocious. The title track kicks off Side A with a stop-and-go groove, string-bending guitar work, and call and response vocals oozing punk-rock anxiety over the minute-and-a-half song. "Beating In My Head" lays down its no-excuse diatribe over a slow and nasty groove that "can't promise it won't fight back" right before it explodes in a final fifteen seconds of catharsis. "Vicious Grin" tells the story of Frankie, a boy with frighting eyes who can really move, over a explosive bed of Chuck Berry guitar riffs. "Semi-Pro" closes out the EP strong with another short blast of dirt-pop and confirms that Faux Ferocious have mastered the art of highlighting a hook burred deep in the underbelly of the city.
