The Mantis Opera started out as the fleeting solo project of Allister Kellaway before mutating into a fully fledged band in 2014. After gigging around London, Brighton and Bristol the band released their EP “Four Movements”. A single from the EP – “Reykjavik” was released on 7″ vinyl in an edition of Flying Vinyl’s subscription service. In 2019 the band released their single “Eden” on Full Power Records.
