August Darnell, aka Kid Creole, leads his band in another installment of the ongoing Mimi saga, titled “Doppelganger.” The album blends eccentric narratives with exotic pop, reflecting Kid Creole & the Coconuts’ signature style. Drawing from global influences, the tracks feature vibrant percussion, spirited brass, and occasional electric guitar. While reminiscent of Paul Simon’s “Graceland,” Darnell’s approach remains lighthearted. The album includes a Caribbean-style rendition of Jimmy Soul’s “If You Wanna Be Happy,” echoing the themes seen in previous hits. While not reaching the heights of those, “Doppelganger” still delights loyal fans and introduces new listeners to the band’s unique sound.
