Reading based artist Split The Dealer (Sam Brett) – alongside long term partner Skye Bennett – shares the vividly intense and personal tune XV. A slice of sleek and smart modern pop, hued by a rich array of 90s influences…
“XV was written from a personal experience about our relationship” Sam reveals. “We’ve been together for nine years, and I wrote this when we were going through some really tough times about three years in”.
“We met over Facebook – as many millennial teenagers do – after noticing we each shared an interest in music, and a lot of mutual friends” Skye continues…Fast-forward to January 15th 2011, and Sam asked if I’d be his
girlfriend. Like any relationship, it’s been rewarding and challenging, but we stuck at it and have never been happier. Sam also began music at 15, which was another big circumstance where the number 15 cropped up.
It’s always been a pretty significant number. Hence, XV!”
