Athena is a band from Istanbul founded by twin brothers Hakan and Gökhan Özoğuz in 1987. They started off in ’87 as a trash metal band, but turned to rock/punk/ska with time.

In 2014, they released the album Altüst, featuring a song Ses Etme, which caused a lot of controversy, since the music video for it was following one day in the life of a transgender person.

This whole album is definitely worth your time, but the song I would love to emphasize and just can’t stop listening to is Adımız Miskindir Bizim. Beauty for the ears, beauty for the soul.
