Naomi Alligator, the musical alter ego of Los Angeles-based songwriter and multi-media artist Corrinne James, has released a self-directed and animated video for “Don’t Get It,” the latest from her upcoming new album, Double Knot, out July 1st on Carpark Records.
Of the song and video James says “‘Don’t Get It’ is a song about a bad friend. The music video takes that to the extreme and ends with a fight scene. I’ve never gotten into a fist fight (and don’t plan on it) but I wanted to scratch the itch. I also wanted to film/edit a fight scene.”
Naomi Alligator’s home-spun recordings serve as a platform for James’ lyrical narratives. Both mournful and aspirant, Double Knot wrestles with monolithic themes such as loneliness and yearning with an uncommon earnestness.
