Akli (Blind), a post punk, industrial music project was created during the global pandemic. Lockdown loneliness inspired the predominant themes and musical ideas of their songs, which were written by performer Kristijonas Valančius.

The band’s music is aggressive, filled with philosophical reflections and chaotic thoughts. It combines expressive guitar parts, dark synthesiser sounds, and vocals full of inner pain. The songs created by Akli stand out with a unique sound, while the moods range from challenging cynicism and anger to moments of enlightenment and cleansing. Their debut album Taika (Peace) was released in the summer of 2020 and immediately attracted the attention of music experts. Exactly a year later, the band released their second album, Refleksija (Reflection), which they presented during their Baltic tour.
