AUDIO: Rustbelt – “Nothing Feels Good”

Rustbelt taps into his Milwaukee roots with his newest release, covering local emo heroes The Promise Ring with his version of “Nothing Feels Good.” Giving it a uniquely Rustbelt makeover, his take on the song transforms things into a synth-heavy beat, and autotuned vocals put a new twist on the track. The song clocks in under two minutes, but feels like a more bombastic version of what the Rustbelt project has been up to this point. The emotional spirit of “Nothing Feels Good” lives on with this cover, though it feels like a sonic departure in a sense. It ultimately makes the sounds Rustbelt feel more dynamic, so be on the lookout for the direction that things go in from here. Check out the song below:
