It’s in the name of a greater good Bridge: Those that are hiding in the shadows Will find nothing but despair They’ll run after vanity thinking it’s their savior Outro: I don’t need your lonely help You’re a liar with no face

about

'Holy Fool' is the first full album by Ukrainian-American indie-rock band Vinok. The 11-track album has been in the works over the past two years. Each song has a unique story to tell and addresses social justice issues ranging from disability rights to feminism, politics, and religion.

“Our musical endeavors in this album are a pathway to reveal the insanity of the world in a creatively insane manner,” said Nathalie lead vocalist of the band.

'Holy Fool' was mixed by sound producer and engineer Paul ‘PDub’ Walton who worked with legends such as Bjork, U2, Madonna, Massive Attack, Birdy, and The Cure. The album was mastered by Rudy Martinez, who is a voting member of the Grammys as well as an active member of the Audio Engineering Society.
