Why do you need both "einfach" and "nur" in this sentence? Could you use just one of them?

You could just use one of them - the sentence would still be correct. "Einfach nur" is just used for emphasis.

I would never use the phrase "simply only" in English. So, I don't think its correct to translate this sentence word by word
