Athena, the first ska act ever to grace the Eurovision stage (in 2004) are back with a new album called "Altüst" (translated as "Upside Down").
Athena's fans are used to long breaks between new albums and this time was no exception. "Altüst" came out in November 2014, almost 5 years after their previous full-lenght, "Pis" (May, 2010).
Remaing faithful to their trademark sound, throughout the 12 new offerings it is possible to listen to ska, punk, garage and pop rock in a album that was released by Pasaj Müzik.
This new album came out in a time when Athena's frontman, Gökhan Özoğuz, was receiving great exposure as a coach on "O Ses Türkiye" ("The Voice of Turkey") alongside Hadise and Mazhar Alanson & Özkan Uğur from MFO.
Like we wrote in the beginning Athena was the first ska act at the Eurovision and so far they remain the most successful one, despite the remarkable achievements of Zdob și Zdub from Moldova in 2005 and Koza Mostra from Greece in 2013.
"Kafama Göre" is the first song from Altüst to receive a video. You can watch it below.
