Gum Country, the collab project between Courtney Garvin (The Courtneys) and Connor Mayer, pay tribute to the art of tennis in new single “Tennis (I Feel OK).” It’s a mood-boosting indie pop piece where the duo boxes us into that blissful moment in the field where you’re swinging your racket and unleashing any bad juju with each hit. Enjoy:

On the new single, Courtney shared: “Kinda goofy, but in all honesty my relationship with tennis is so meaningful to me on a spiritual level. It’s my meditation practice. The game makes you present, you’re repeating movements, and finding a rhythm. And it’s so creative. I think all athletes are artists. Plus you get to be outside, getting exercise, hanging with friends and all of those things are so good for you. So the song is pretty much about how tennis just makes my life better. I love tennis. If anyone reading this wants to play (after the pandemic) please hit me up.”

The track is from the duo’s debut record Somewhere, which will be out on June 19th.
