Three albums in, the project she birthed seven years ago finds its most steely-focus and ambitious form yet.
Stina takes the solo reigns in collaboration with super-producer John Congleton (Angel Olsen, St Vincent).
When Stina Tweeddale got home after two years on the road touring Honeyblood's second album Babes Never Die something terrifying happened. She was haunted.
Every night when she went to bed in her own house in Glasgow after living in strange hotel rooms, a woman would come to try and strangle her.
"It sounds mad," she says down the phone from Scotland.
"I started having these horrendous hallucinations and night terrors.
"I wasn't even sleepwalking, I was sleep running about my house being haunted by this woman who'd come to me in my dreams and try and kill me!"
Three albums in, Stina has decided to claim the sole spotlight of she project she started seven years ago.
"I started writing this at home on my own. At first I felt like a bit of a loner," she recounts of the aforementioned post-tour period.
"But once I got used to the cabin-fever, I couldn't turn back."
Stina and drummer Cat Myers had agreed to some off-time after living on the road, but when Myers took a side-gig drumming for Mogwai, Stina was left with a restless mind and an empty practice space.
She wrote. And wrote. Over 30 demos she totals up.
"I was isolated in my little house in the middle of nowhere. But it's funny what happens when left to your own devices."
By the time Myers got back from tour, the album already had a life of its own; a vision that Stina was not ready to compromise.
In Plain Sight was recorded during Halloween season in 2018 with John Congleton in his LA studio.
Congleton was a dream-come-true; a producer who she'd admired for making guitar-based music that didn't feel traditional.
"You make a wish and then it's like: How the fuck did I manage to do that?"
"Every move, every song, everything I was doing on this record was new territory,"
"It was a big jump but a very eye-opening experience. I didn't want to play off the same tricks I'd used before."
Honeyblood's new album 'In Plain sight' is available on 24th May 2019. CLICK HERE for more info.
