EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: Joe Gideon & The Shark - Hide and Seek
When someone says “brother-sister guitar-drums duo,” you are no longer allowed to say “Oh, you mean like…”—even if Londoners Joe Gideon and his sister Viva do play rock music under some kind of cracked blues spell on the forthcoming Harum Scarum. Gideon is more a cockeyed storyteller than a singer, as the comically evil little tale within the thumping “Hide and Seek” proves. The uncommonly talented Viva represented Great Britain in the Barcelona Olympics as a rhythmic gymnast; now she merely drums, pianos, whoops and plays a little guitar—often at the same time. Which is probably why she gets a nickname like the Shark as opposed to the sort of things you call your little sister.
