If you are SO over the schmaltzy-ness of Valentines Day, then TRAPPER SCHOEPP may well have the antidote you’ve been waiting for… “Drive Thru Divorce” is the ripely-titled and finely-timed new single from the erudite Wisconsinite singer-songwriter.

“When you’ve lost, lost the course… There’s drive-thru divorce” quips Trapper in one of the most beguilingly catchy-choruses of the year so far.

A sumptuous soft-rock charmer beamed straight from the mid-70s; Schoepp delivers a piece of post-Valentines melancholy magic, wonderfully topped-off with lugubrious wedding chimes, forlorn church organs, and guitar-lines seemingly always destined to break away…

“Drive Through Divorce” arrives as Trapper Schoepp prepares to embark on a UKand European tour with his Xtra Mile Recordings label mates SKINNY LISTER.  Kicking off at Brighton’s The Haunt on the 28th February, the tour will see Schoepp and Skinny go on to visit venues in France, Belgium, Germany, Holland, Czech Republic and Switzerland before returning for a second UK leg in April.
