Budapest based band, The Qualitons is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Catchy, energetic, psychedelic rock inspired by the sounds of mod-beat and funk music of the 60s and 70s. Budapest based band, The Qualitons has built a reputation for their entertaining shows and the unique vibe that describes them. After a successful European tour, international support has also been surrounding them, manifesting in radio show ups (BBC, KEXP), interviews and showcase festivals(SXSW).
The albums Panoramic Tymes and Tomorrow's News is now followed by the brand new third one, called Echoes Calling. With the new musical material the band is off to pastures new.
