Striking Distance is the first in a string of seven-inch EPs by Nashville art-punks, Faux Ferocious. Consisting of four perfect slices of noise-pop, Faux Ferocious brandish more personality in ten-minutes than many groups do on hour-long albums. Side A is made up of an immediate and decisive one-two punch. "Striking Distance" is all edge-of-a-knife drive that demands you get together or get out of the way. "Billy" tells the story of a kid that never got along over an unflustered groove that screams cool. "Boys Like Creatures" kicks off Side B with a fuzzed-out chant-along as performed by rockabilly's juvenile delinquent cousin from the city. "A Poor Born Man" exudes the pent-up frustration that comes from having a girl go out with some other creep and not being able to do a thing but sing about it. Stiking Distance is a hard, fast, and dangerous at any speed start for Faux Ferocious.
