    Inside a log cabin and just outside Hall's Gap, Splurge got stuck into the songs that make up The Cure For The Cure, the band's third album which will be released in 2007 by PopBoomerang.

    It wasnt the first time the band had taken up residence there - two tracks from their debut were recorded live in the big wooden room and the open fire crackles behind the vocals of their second release Heavy Weather. But this time a makeshift studio was cobbled together and this band headed for the hills of The Grampians with a station wagon full of their recording gear, vintage amps, guitars and effects.

    "We wanted to make a record that came from some other place," says songwriter Greg Williams. "More than that - not just to sound to like it, but to be in it. You get up there, you get your bunk, you get your spot in the room, you get up every day and make music. You get dug in."

    Splurge don't exactly come from nowhere - MOJO magazine heard the ghost of Lennon in the way "they rock, they play it gentle, they deliver the hooks" and in Greg's "expressive and emotionally direct" voice, Jeff Jenkins of Inpress found echoes of Grant McLennon.

    While "the tunes come thick and fast", others noticed "a keen eye for delicious pop treats, but also an emotive honesty", an "innate ability to meld melody and mood" and an "eclectic mix of styles that displays confidence and ability" - while referencing Dylan, The Church, Oasis ("Liam with a brain") and Teenage Fanclub.

    But for the band, it's just not what it sounds like that matters. "All the songs pick up on the idea that nothing is ever finished - by the time you find the cure, you'll need a cure for that too. One thing you can do is be in the moment. what it is to be in this place at this time. and that's what we tried to catch up in The Cabin."
