Alice Dwyte is the first single taken from Sabrina and the Red Van’s debut album Cheap Romance, which is set for release March 2012. With serious vocal prowess, dirty 70s rock guitar and driving drum and bass, all complemented with commanding vocal harmonies, this track is an exciting insight of what’s to come when Cheap Romance is released next year.

The single features Joe Cope (Eagle and the Worm) on keys. Based in Melbourne, Sabrina and the Red Vans inject soul and groove into the hard-worn genre of rock ‘n’ roll. The Red Vans are a first-class line-up headed by Sabrina Sandapa – nominee for best female vocalist at the Los Angeles Music Awards (2007), first place in the Folk/Acoustic sector of the Australian Songwriting Contest (2009), and winner of the 2007 Coka Cola live and local unsigned competition.

Lead guitarist Greg Whitehead, backing vocalist and bassist Suzanne Kinsella and drummer/percussionist Andrew Rogers come together as the Red Vans, an exceptional line-up enabling Sabrina to expand her creative vision for her music and earn an outstandi  reputation as a must-see live act. Sabrina’s debut EP release Mirror Mirror (formally released July 2010 through MGM) received commercial radio airplay on the Hot 100 (nationally), Triple J as well as other various community radio stations including PBS and Triple R. The success of the EP has seen Sabrina and the Red Vans playing support for headline acts around Australia, including Ross Wilson, Ash Grunwald, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu and Blue King Brown.

Sabrina & the RVs play Lennox Point Hotel tonight at 9pm and Sheoak Shack on Sunday January 1 at 4pm.
