"Division of Planes Trembling Wires"

These players have a sound that defies their status as a three-piece; drummer Thomas Duffy, bassist Jerel Johnson and guitarist/vocalist Tom Unish deliver intricate, rhythmically challenging songs that each feature a highly unique identity. Fans of more demanding bands such as The Plot to Blow up the Eiffel Tower or Secret Mommy will love this; particularly the more abrasive "Take Everything". There are unconventional harmonies to be found throughout Trembling Wires, most notably "Sneak On Up" and "Ghost". Quite often this requires multiple listens, as you need to deconstruct the layers which comprise the tracks. Division of Planes do not deliver ear candy, and we are all better off for it! - Jersey Beat


6 song CD EP Trembling Wires - released July 2007
MP3 single "Disarray" - released November 2005



Based in Brooklyn, NY, Division of Planes balances noise with melody in a tense and intricate manner. Their early material layered Tom's skillful yet fractured guitar over the tight rhythms Thomas and Jerel had developed. Within their first two months as a band eight songs were written and Division of Planes was in a supporting slot of a small East Coast tour. Immediately after their first summer together, the band began writing more integrated and direct material. In October 2005, Division of Planes recorded the tightly rhythmic and tunefully dissonant "Disarray" as an mp3 single with engineer Ted Young (Andrew WK, The Hold Steady) at Water Music Recorders in New Jersey. On the strength of this recording, and the impression they made on touring bands, the Division of Planes played shows on the West Coast and various venues around New York City. Division of Planes entered the studio again in the Fall of 2006, this time with engineer Scott Norton (Coco Rosie, The Mink Lungs, Early Man) at his place Headgear Recordings in Brooklyn. Using the studio's Trident 80C console they recorded live, with the exception of vocals and minor overdubs, direct to a Pro Tools Mix Plus System. A month later, the 6 tracks of Trembling Wires were mixed at Headgear — once again by Scott. The EP was mastered by TJ Lipple (The Evens, Medications, and Wilderness) at Silver Sonya in Arlington, VA. The band released Trembling Wires on their own imprint Divided by Records in July 2007.
