Hardcore metal band, Sharptooth, released their debut album Clever Girl in 2017 to strong reviews.

The source of their songs come easy as all the members are politically active, led by frontwoman/vocalist and songwriter, Lauren Kashan and includes guitarists Keth Higgins, Lance Donati and drummer Conor Mac.
