When asked about “The Edge of Love” EP Ms. Sebastian explains,
It tells a story of being on the borders between love and hate, strong emotions. I am a very passionate person, it’s all or nothing for me. It is about sudden changes that a relationship brings and the journey of immediate transformation through them. It is the dialogue between the extremes. It has a bit of Nietzsche, a bit of Kafka and a little bit of cyberpunk.”
The EP features seven tracks: “The Edge of Love”, “One Day”, “Poison”, “Desert”, “Running”, “Love Letter” and “Desert Remix”. Four music videos were filmed : “One Day”, “Poison”, “The Edge of Love” and “Desert” with a very talented young director Kevin Hudson. She also wrote the treatments for two of them, she stated,
They are all like chapters of the same book unfolding in various ways”.
