I would describe the songs on All Forgotten Dreams as mostly melancholic and melodic Post Rock, but some Pop and happier moods are also included in the mix, in good part in the second half of this very good album. Heavier moments can also be heard but the pace is mostly on the slower side of things, something The Black Light has in common with Norwegian band Gazpacho. If I were to pick another group as an accecptable reference it would be Radiohead (circa OK Computer and  Kid A) this in part because of Andrew Watt's drumming style.
