Today's Song of the Day was inspired by real nightmares that Honeyblood frontwoman Stina Tweeddale started having. "After months of touring my last album Babes Never Die, I finally came home to rest and developed increasingly vivid and frightening night terrors," she said via a press release. "At one point they were a weekly occurrence — the same figure would visit me each time hell-bent on either strangling or just plain scaring me to death!"

Tweeddale had a lot to be anxious about: while the Glasgow, Scotland band started as a duo in 2012, for the brand new third album In Plain Sight, she decided to go it alone. “It was nerve-wracking,” she told Substream Magazine, but she feels confident in her decision. "I know I’ve done myself justice. I’ve made something I’m really happy with and I’m just itching to get going now. From now on this is how it’s gonna be.”

As for the nightmares? She continues, "After learning much more about how night terrors are manifested, I was intrigued to learn that the brain cannot conjure a face out of nothing. The woman who visits me in my dreams was a real person I have seen while I’ve been awake. I wrote ‘She’s A Nightmare’ about our strange relationship and however frightening, I am absolutely captivated by her."
