A sonic powder keg of biting punk rock, chant-worthy choruses and plenty of sass, A Simple F**k You quite simply lives up to its name, with Nocturnal Animals doling out emphatic drums, distorted guitars and the occasional angsty scream while also cathartically wishing some specific karmic retribution in this biting alt-rock outing.
Wishing some tongue-in-cheek ‘bad day’ moments on its subject, including copping a flat tyre on the way to work, losing your headphones and coming down with a cold, A Simple F**k You may initially present as vindictive on the surface; but in the affable hands of Nocturnal Animals, A Simple F**k You instead emerges as an uplifting emotional purge for life’s less-than-rosy moments while also firmly showcasing the trio’s chiselled songwriting, with plenty of grit, mosh-ready rhythms, and slacker rock nods in attendance for good measure.
An infectious and satisfying slice of alt-rock, A Simple F**k You is a brilliant antidote to a bad day, a bad break up or just a lack of rambunctious lounge room mosh pits as you wait patiently for the weekend.

Nocturnal Animals have once again found a way to be relatable and riveting rascals with A Simple F**k You, and petty revenge has never sounded this good.
