If you listen to the rest of BLAISE’s tracks featured on his DAY ONES ONLY Soundcloud page then you’re bound to hear the emergence of a new hip-hop R&B talent, but “Seeing Double” is something different entirely. This is all hook, no rhyme and with sing-songy vocals that feel more like an Indie lullaby than a hip-hop banger. On his twitter BLAISE even dubs it as “this one got some country feels.” 

I don’t know if this is a departure for the artist, or his music is just this multi-faceted. I do know that I love it, so what does it even matter? Good music is good music is good music and “Seeing Double” is good music. This track belongs on playlists of all genres, I guess. Don’t you dare pin BLAISE down, fools gonna do whatever he wants.

Leave it to us at We Are: The Guard to get behind tracks that sound a little different. We do it for you, fam.



With this minimal, chill beat from Imad Royal, “Seeing Double” really does feel like a bliss-out lullaby putting you to sleep at the end of the after party. After a long night at Brownies & Lemonade, come home to the sesh with friends and put this track on. This’ll mellow the squad out for sure. With new songs expected every Tuesday I can’t wait to hear whats next from BLAISE.

See you next week probably lol.


From deep within the murky depths of the Los Angeles River emerged a creature: 50% raver, 50% comedian, 10% Robotcop. Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
