Review: "it's nothing you did (it's everything)" - Corzine

Corzine takes listeners on an upbeat, relatable journey of self-realization with new track, “it’s nothing you did (it’s everything).” There comes a time after a relationship when you start to finally understand everything you gave up to make it work, most of all parts of yourself. We never like to be the villain of our own story, so it’s extremely gratifying when you can walk away and know you were not the problem. You can love someone so deeply and still understand you have to walk away for your own sanity and well being. A lot of toxic partners only show they care after you’ve already walked out the door, and as they beg for you back, you must remember how they treated you when they thought you’d never run. Starting over is not easy, but it’s never the wrong decision to choose yourself and not settle for anything less than what you deserve. When your head hits the pillow, you can sleep soundly knowing you gave it all you had, and take some comfort in knowing that your ex will be up all night long with the sinking feeling that it’s nothing he did… it’s everything.

This song is the first single from Corzine since their debut album. Their first release in 3 years brings us a reflection of the life experiences since she’s been gone. She explores the nuances of all different kinds of relationships: romantic, platonic, familial, and dances around the possibilities of alternate endings - what if this went a different way? Their writing is full of what if’s — a reflection of their own uncertainties and anxieties. She plays with acute metaphors to capture much bigger concepts about trying to find your place in the world. Their favorite part of “it’s nothing you did (it’s everything)” is at 1:25 when the music builds with a funky breakdown underneath her euphoric, powerhouse vocals. Corzine believes in the power of healing through shared connection, and their music is sure to bring people together.

Corzine, also known as Hayley Lewis, is an independent alt-rock singer/songwriter with pop, indie, and dream pop flares. Listening to a Corzine song is like getting a peek at the page of someone’s diary, or being a fly on the wall for their therapy session. She released their debut album “Look What We Made” in 2020. Their track “The Coffee Shop” accumulated over 17,000 streams on Spotify. As a former theatre and choir kid, their music takes you on an emotive journey. Follow Corzine below, and stream “it’s nothing you did (it’s everything)” now!
