God, what he admits to is bad enough. I really love this guy's music. One of my favorite songs is from Reflektor, mentioned as a means of perving on young women in this article. He sings a song called Porno on that album where he actually seems to get it.

He apparently has had an "open marriage" for almost a decade according to this? I wasn't sure where to post this but it seemed most fitting here bc of that. Ugh. His poor wife and those poor young women.

I really did like this band specifically because they did seem like a fairly clean outfit. I love their music too, but I felt I could relate so much and that these people were actual adults. Nope, Win is a man child just like every other man in the earth.

Maybe I will just stop listening to music that men put out. I feel kind of broken hearted to hear this honestly. So gross.

Glad to see another Ovarit sister discussing this. I love the song Porno as well. So strange that the message is completely lost on Win, lmao.

His actions are inexcusable, and with one of the artists dropping out from the current Arcade Fire tour (Fiest), and Win's brother leaving the band, there is no doubt that this will seal the fate of the band overall.

Never listened to the recent album myself. Anyone who sexually harasses women and even makes one attempt suicide is a hard nope. Sorry Arcade Fire. There are way better bands to listen to right now.
