So who is Tommy February6? Simply put, she's Kawase Tomoko, singer of the alt-rock band the Brilliant Green.

The "February6" in her moniker refers to Kawase's birthday -- February 6.

Unlike the Byrds-inspired pop-rock of the Brilliant Green, Tommy February6 is steeped in the 80s. Her second single, "*Kiss* One More Time", was touted by her label as a "New Romantic" tune, citing Duran Duran, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Howard Jones as influences.

Tommy February6's first single, "Everyday at the Bus Stop", contained tracks gloriously drenched with analog synthesizers and tinny bass lines. For this self-produced project, Kawase has definitely gone retro.
