Fresh voices, fresh thoughts, the angst and emotions and rawness of adolescence are brimming in Harsh Crowd’s new EP “Better.” Harsh Crowd is comprised of four 14-year old teenage girls Dea Brogaard-Thompson (guitar), Willow Bennison (vocals), Lena Faske ( drums) and Rihana Abdulrashid-Davis (Bass), who met while they were at Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls. Since then, they’ve been bringing down the house, Following in the footsteps of greats like Kathleen Hanna (who they have opened for), Joan Jett, and Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz).
