Published Dec 10, 2013Though Matt Goud started as a member of hardcore rock and punk bands, he's now making passionate folk-tinged rock music as Northcote, which features an ever-changing roster of musicians backing him up. You'll still hear the odd punk influence in Goud's gruff vocal tones and guitar licks, making his music a delightful hybrid of pop sensibility and punk aggression.
Goud dropped by our office, where he performed "How Can You Turn Around" from Northcote's self-titled 2013 album. Though it's just Goud and his acoustic guitar, his dynamic delivery and powerful strumming make the song feel as fully-formed as it does on record. See it all below.
Northcote will be touring with Philly punk vet Dave Hause this winter. Head over here for dates.
