It works fine here. My best guess would be that test.mp3 already
contains a TPE1 frame, but with encoding set to ISO-8859-1. Function
setArtist will reuse the existing frame and just set the text, without
changing the encoding to the default one (UTF-8).

(Btw, it would be better to send source code in attachments as the
word-wrap broke it. Also I guess "foo喆bar" was supposed to
contain an Unicode characters, but your mail client converted it.)
