Polka Dot Socks (Single)

by Angel Heart

Track listing: Polka Dot Socks

"Polka Dot Socks" is the latest single by singer/songwriter Angel Heart, the song a powerful emotional tribute to her uncle who served a paternal role during the artist's childhood. It touches on a single moment when he purchased a pair of polka dotted socks on the way to watch a movie together. Angel Heart captures this moment in her lyrics and has set it to a lush soundtrack, complete with pan flute, acoustic guitar and orchestration.

As the song plays, I couldn't help but be reminded of the 1986 Country hit "Daddy's Hands" by Holly Dunn--the songs share the heartfelt sentiment of the importance of a child having a loving fatherly presence in their life. For Angel Heart, she explains in our June 12, 2024 interview, "I always look back at the special memories and times we shared and vowed that I would one day honour the special man who never gave up on me, who showered me with Barbie dolls, polka dot socks, and unconditional love, and was the first person in my life who encouraged me to sing my heart out."

With yesterday being Father's Day, there's no more fitting time to review this single and recognize fathers worldwide. Fittingly, Angel Heart has dedicated "Polka Dot Socks" to "all the amazing fathers and father-figures who have stood by and protected their daughters and continue to support and love them unconditionally." 

Angel Heart currently has four singles released on Spotify but you can find much more across her social platforms, particularly on TikTok where she's created dozens of videos in which she covers hits from the past few decades. Dive in and learn more about "Polka Dot Socks" and Angel Heart's bridge from covers to originals.
