Their independent debut CD, Girlfriend, "The New Me" was produced by John Morand at Sound of Music in Philip's hometown of Richmond, Virginia.  Talented New York City  &  Los Angeles Dee Jays Pauly Love  and Ryeland Allison (aka Ryebot) remixed their song "Little Things"  and "Girlfriend" spreading Girlfriend's music to an even wider audience in the club/dance/electronica music world.  VTown Cartel now adds this music to it's roster and will exclusively distribute through it's domestic channels and international partners.

“If typical New York rock isn’t your thing - say you prefer some artistry in your pop - come out tonight.  Robin Cryer and Phil Hyland offer adult, singer-songwriterish songs, yet safely skirt the folk trap.”
- Jeff Koyen, New York Press

“Striking the elusive balance between the musically ethereal and emotionally real.  Cryer and Hyland aspire to what a modern duo should be: gentle, clever, lovelorn and doomsaying...”
- Natasha Stovall, The Village Voice

“Led by singer/keyboardist Robin Cryer and guitarist/singer Philip Hyland, this engaging New York pop combo revels in retro kitsch, from the charmingly cornball artwork to the radio-friendly sounds on the disc that recall British smooth-popsters like Swing Out Sister, Danny Wilson and Everything But the Girl.  Crystalline guitars and light keyboards frame vocal based arrangements...the songs and performances are dead earnest, the joyful melodies masking lyrics full of melancholy and romantic disappointment.  Coupled with memorable melodies and Cryer’s lovely vocals, tunes like “Look”, “Tremendous” and “Girlfriend” form ear candy that will haunt you for days afterwards...an uncommonly good album.”
- Michael Toland, Pop Press Culture

“Doing some very interesting original music…well worth checking out.”
– George Maida, NPR / The Electric Crowd
