Denise Allan is director of 677 Media Management based in Glasgow: "We continue to work with Glasvegas who release their fourth album April 21, and have moved on to a renaissance of female Scottish talent with new music released from them all in 2021. Complementing Glasvegas we have Freakwave, Lamaya, Cherry and Steph Johnston also on our roster."
Here's our recent chat with Denise to discuss her favourite campaigns in 2020 and talk about the overlaps between visual creativity and music.
I’m currently working on assisting James Allan, lead singer of Glasvegas, who always has a strong vision for the creative. Every single aspect is created or approved by him as we line up assets supporting monthly single releases and an album in 2021.
Creatively at the moment I’m loving Arlo Parks. Whoever is coming up with the artwork, logo, colour choices and photos seems like one single vision as it's consistent, fits the music and still really stands out as it's so stylised yet still delicate.
My all-time favourite music video is Kanye West's Flashing Lights. Videos are one of the biggest gambles your artist can take without really being sure of the outcome. And money does not always equate to quality. This song is stellar but the video idea is super simple. I love the violence; it looks very cathartic plus Rita G's body jiggles in all the right places.
