The list of electronica duo Client's associations reads like a who's who of pop. DiS could kill a few sentences by listing them... but let's not. 'Pornography' is more than capable of filling the space. A pounding, illusively sexual ode to an obsessive relationship, its main focus is the vocal chemistry between Sarah Blackwood and guest vocalist Carl Barat; her prim, exquisitely enunciated Northern vocals sashay through 'Pornography'_ with icy detachment as the ex-Libertine's insalubrious drawl slinks around her ankles. The result is pure electricity, and virulently catchy.
Inevitably, with the Libertines** connection, the song's been floating around the internet and enrapturing fans for a while. For this writer, 'Pornography'_ rises above anything produced by the Libertines; if this is the kind of thing that comes of them disbanding, Albion had better just manage without them.
