Boz Boorer can rightfully be described as being at the heart of the British music scene. This guitarist, songwriter and producer is known to many music fans across the world as a founding member of legendary neo-rockabilly band, The Polecats and also as co-writer, guitarist and musical director over the past 20 years with former Smiths frontman, Morrissey. On top of this he also produces promising indie newcomers in his studio in Portugal and works with long-time companions like Edwyn Collins, Adam Ant and many others.
For his new brilliant solo single, ‘Girl From Atlanta’, Boz teamed up with Art Brut lead singer and mastermind Eddie Argos. An amazing collaboration!
‘Girl from Atlanta’ is really a love song to my favourite city in America, more than about an actual girl. I've always had a great time there. The first time my band Art Brut played there we went to a club called the Drunken Unicorn. The second time we went to Atlanta the Drunken Unicorn were handing out flyers with 'Eddie Argos's favourite club in America' written on them. They were right, it is my favourite club. I hadn’t told anybody though they must have just seen it on my face. I loved Atlanta and I couldn't hide it“ (Eddie Argos)
The video filmed and produced by ‘They Shoot Music’ in Vienna features the debonair Eddie Argos wondering the streets charming all those he meets
