SONGS FOR RUNAWAY GIRLS came together to create and record the original soundtrack for the novel Air Carnation written by Guadalupe Muro. All lyrics were written by her and the music was composed and is performed by Julián Muro and Ana López, musicians also from Argentina. The album was mostly recorded in a one-day session, on February, 28th of 2014, a shiny day of summer, in a vacant inn built on the shores of Lago Gutierrez with a beautiful view of the lake and the mountains, in San Carlos de Bariloche, Patagonia, Argentina.
