Stundin replied in a public statement that they had tried to contact Dýrason for comment to no avail, and that they would proceed with publishing the interview. 

The interview, published on Friday, publishes Boyd's account of the alleged rape. 

Music website Pitchfork had a few days previously published an interview with Boyd  with more precise details. 

Speaking with Pitchfork, Dýrason denied Boyd’s claim that he had non-consensual sex with her, and said that they did not have sex at all. But Dýrason confirmed he spent the night in question with her, “talking and drinking.” He also confirmed the authenticity of two September 27 emails from him that Boyd had posted on Instagram. Dýrason declined to comment further, but told Pitchfork that he plans to say more at a later date. “My comment is I didn’t do anything,” he said.
