band, made up of Espen Enger
and Marius Våreid
. They changed the name from Phileas Fogg
not long before the consert at the Quart
festival in 1998 (Where I saw them live). Before that, they were know as Frydenstund
, a pun
on a Norwegian beer
They make largely electronic music, with a lot of influence from funk, jazz, hip-hop and pretty much everything else. They have published one album (A nightclub in Tunis) that got a lot of positive reviews, but did not sell very well.
The band most resembling Päronsoda on an international basis, is probably Air. 'Päronsoda' is pronunced 'përonsodah' and means 'pear sodapop' in Swedish.
