VIDEO: Man Mantis - Red Dragonfly

One month ago, Madison, Wisconsin’s masked producer Man Mantis released his Sea Ambulance EP. The densely layered, darkly melodic tracks offered a glimpse of Man Mantis’ upcoming LP Cities Without Houses, and received an enthusiastic if sometimes perplexed response. Mantis continues the mystery this week with the release of the official video to Red Dragonfly:

Continuing in the EP’s druggy, unsettling fashion, the video laces a Twilight Zone atmosphere with the psychedelic visuals of 1960s hippie freakout films. The Red Dragonfly video was directed by Madison videographer Joe Ramos, who is also an avid documentarian of local live music. His extensive vault of footage can be viewed at
